Quote:
The four Americans aboard a yacht hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia are dead.

Hijacked last Friday off Oman, the Quest was being piloted toward the Somali coast - and was being shadowed by a U.S. Navy warship.

CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports that gunshots aboard the yacht were heard, and the warship took action.

All four Americans were dead, killed apparently by their captors. There were more than a dozen pirates on board, some dead and others captured, Martin reports.

... whether the boat is carrying loot or Bibles.

I wonder if they targeted this one because it was carrying Bibles since these pirates seem to be strongly Islamic.
They didn't take it for weapons and cargo, that's for sure.
