This is breaking news coming in now, the captain of the Maersk Alabama, Captain Richard Phillips has been rescued from the Somali pirates and is now aboard a U.s. Navy warship. A firefight broke out between U.S. forces and the pirates, killing 3 pirates. A 4th pirate was taken into custody. Phillips is unharmed.
Praise God – this is a great Easter for the Phillips family now.
I’m glad that this is over, and at least those pirates will never harm another human being. Congratulations to the U.S. Navy for a job well done here.
