Somali pirates boast of having families in Britain

Two of the Somali pirates who kidnapped yacht couple Paul and Rachel Chandler have boasted of having families in Britain.
The gang members, who held the British couple for 13 months, claimed they were set to join their relatives in the UK during tense negotiations to release the pair.
One of the pirate leaders said he now plans to travel to Britain to join his wife and two children, who he says have lived in London for three years after claiming political asylum.
The other is also believed to have family in London. The revelation comes as police probe links with Somalia after the Chandlers were freed for an unspecified ransom.
In a phone call a 32-yearold named Hassan talks about rejoining his wife and children in London, but says: “I’m not looking forward to the cold weather.”
He adds: “I am also worried that women are more powerful in the UK.”
