Americans slain by captors on hijacked yacht

Somalia Should be shelled repeatedly until all 600 plus hostages are released, it is about time the world stand up to the scourge of the land that is Islam and quit being such a pussy about things.

It is a shame these people were killed, it is a shame and a fact that more people will be killed, if nothing is ultimately done about Radical Islam, the War that is starting to pop in Muslim Countries will spill over into non-Muslim countries.

And we all will be held Hostage !

(CNN) -- A round-the-world boating adventure ended tragically Tuesday for four Americans, whom pirates fatally shot after capturing their yacht in the Indian Ocean last week, U.S. officials said.

The 58-foot vessel, named the Quest, was being shadowed by the military after pirates took the ship off the coast of Oman on Friday. Officials had said earlier Tuesday it was less than two days from the Somali coast.

Ship owners Jean and Scott Adam and Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle were found shot after U.S. forces boarded the vessel about 1 a.m. ET, officials said.

The forces responded after a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at a U.S. Navy ship about 600 yards away -- and missed -- and the sound of gunfire could be heard on board the Quest, U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Mark Fox told reporters.

"Despite immediate steps to provide life-saving care, all four hostages ultimately died of their wounds," U.S. Central Command said.
