Somali pirates kidnap American writer 

When an award-winning Californian surf journalist called Michael
Scott Moore decided to take a break from the business of catching
waves, he told friends that he intended to visit Somalia to write a
book about the country's headline-prone professional pirates.

Little did Moore know exactly how hands-on the research project would get. Yesterday, he was identified as the latest unfortunate young American citizen to be kidnapped at gunpoint and held hostage in the African country's lawless northern region of Galmudug.
Officials believe that Moore was seized by a gang of approximately 15 gunmen last Saturday, on the road to Galkayo airport. The location is identical to the one where Jessica Buchanan, the 32-year-old freed by US Navy Seals last week, was seized in October.
