Funafuti Island in Tuvalu

Paradise lost... piracy a world away is ruining the lives of people in Tuvalu

The lawlessness of Somalia has spread fear and panic to one of the world's smallest and most isolated nations, tiny Tuvalu, that sits in the South Pacific Ocean near the International Date Line.

Update: Captured Tuvaluan Seamaen

Posted on April 8, 2009 at 8:36am 1 Comment

Over the news last night, the ship "MV Hans Scavenger" has been sighted by a German Warship. However, according to news, the pirates allowed the captains of both ships to communicate in German but the warship was warned to keep distance to prevent hostility from the pirates.

Hopefully, goodwill prevails and ask for your continuous prayer for the safety of these twelve Tuvaluan seamen.
