Catching the Pirate KingLennart Stuyck, Maarten Stuyck

In 2009, the Belgian ship Pompeii was harshly hijacked by Somali pirates. A remarkable, blood-curdling story that has little in common with the nostalgic rebellious Hollywood image the word piracy evokes. The pirates, moving in small rowboats, have nothing to lose. The crew of the Belgian ship everything... A fascinating flashback featuring not only the crew involved and the Belgian police, but also the former Somali pirates.
