Not every Somali pirate is celebrating the weekend’s successful ransoming of the Sirius Star. A pirate named Libaan Jaama tells CNN that five of his comrades drowned in an accident just after completing the operation. Apparently, the pirates were in a small boat near the Sirius when they became confused by some gunfire by fellow pirates on the shore; they tried to turn their boat around and it capsized. Pirates collected a $3.5 million ransom for the ship, a Saudi oil tanker, which they had held since November 15. "We have the best way of life," Jaama says. "We drive in white SUVs, we enjoy driving them, and there is absolutely no difficulty in our life."
