Somali Pirates versus Somali Pirates

The War is Boring blog published on 28 September 2014 a piece titled "Pro Tip for Pirates--Watch Out for Other Pirates: Somali Bandits Fight and Kill Each Other over Ransom for Kidnapped Journalist" by Robert Beckhusen.  This short article demonstrates what happens when Somali pirates obtain $1.6 million in ransom for a kidnapped journalist who was writing about piracy.  Other pirates then demand some of the money, resulting in the death of three pirates and two civilians.
