Soldier implicated in hostage shooting
SHIPPING: A Danish soldier is very likely to be held responsible by military prosecutors in the death of two mariners held hostage by Somali pirates. He was involved in stopping a pirate vessel off Somalia in February of this year
Prosecutors say the soldier, who opened fire at the hijacked Jelbut 37 ship in an attempt to force it to halt, accidentally killed an Iranian and a Pakistani hostage in the process.
