London Lite Wednesday, 28 October 2009 11 SOMALI DEATH THREAT TO KIDNAPPED BRIT YACHT COUPLE Pay what wedemand say pirates Chelsea:C-section capitaloftheUK PIRATES holding Britons Paul and Rachel Chandler today threatened to kill them if any rescue attempt is made. EU naval forces tracking a yacht in the Indian Ocean thought to belong to the couple were told: Back off or we will punish them. As well as the Chandlers, from Tunbridge Wells in Kent, the Somali pirates say they are holding 36 fisher- men from the Spanish- owned ship Alakrana, seized four weeks ago. The pirates leader, Sha- mun Indhobur, said: We have the Spanish ship and this new yacht. We warn naval forces they must avoid military action because otherwise, if one is attacked, we will punish those from the other vessel. Indhobur also told the Chandlers relatives: We ask their families to contact us and pay what we ask for. He did not mention an amount. Speaking via satellite phone, Indhobur said his men had snatched Mr Chandler, 58, and his wife, 55, as they sailed to Tanzania on their 38ft yacht Lynn Rival. He said he was calling from Haradheere, the port where the pirates who seized the couple on Friday were believed to have taken them. Relatives of the couple today criticised the Foreign Office for not giving them enough information. Mr Chandlers sister, Jill Marshment, 69, said: All I know is what Im hearing from people talking directly to the people who have captured them. If these people have a message they should come to us. We are hearing about their demands second-hand. But the Foreign Office is saying nothing and not even confirming they have been kidnapped. If I was to give a message to the pirates, Id say youve got the wrong people. They are not a wealthy couple. Engineer Mr Chandler and Mrs Chan- dler, an economist, sold their house to fund their dream round-the-world trip. WEST LONDON is the caesarean capital of Britain, new figures reveal.
