MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — A pirate in Somalia says that captors holding an American have moved their hostage at least three times following a pre-dawn raid by U.S. Navy SEALs that rescued another American kidnap victim and a Dane who was being held with her. The SEALs killed nine alleged kidnappers in their operation early Wednesday.
The high-profile rescue raised questions about whether other Western hostages held in Somalia have a greater chance at release — or are in greater danger. Men holding an American hostage said they would kill him if they are attacked.
One pirate suggested captives could be moved to hijacked ships where rescue attempts are more difficult.
