Captain Phillips leave for US 17/04/09

By | April 18th 2009
U.S. captain Richard Phillips captured by Somali pirates last week left Kenya early this morning aboard a Maersk jet, under tight FBI security. Captain Phillips was seen processing his travel documents escorted by US security agents, at the Moi International Airport Mombasa before boarding his flight home. Phillips' huge container ship, the Maersk Alabama, was attacked by Somali pirates last week, but his crew fought off the gunmen. The captain apparently volunteered to board the lifeboat in return for the safety of his 19 crew members. One of the pirates who was not killed during the rescue mission, will also be transported to the US to face trial on American soil.
