British Couple Seized by Somali Pirates Plead for their Lives in New Video

Here is video of British couple Paul and Rachel Chandler, seized by Somali Pirates 30 days ago, pleading for their lives as they were surrounded by Somali Gunmen.

The pirates are asking nearly $7 million ransom for the couple's release:
The family of a British couple kidnapped by pirates have made another appeal for their release after seeing footage of them surrounded by gunmen.

In a video obtained by Channel 4 News, Paul and Rachel Chandler, aged 59 and 55 and from Kent, are seen surrounded by Somali gunmen.

Mr Chandler pleads for their lives, saying they fear they may be killed within a week.

The pirates have demanded a ransom of $7m (£4.3m) in a phone call to the BBC.

This is nearly double the highest ever payout to Somali pirates.

With a gun pointing at her head, Mrs Chandler said: "Our captors are very impatient now that nobody has been in touch to enter into negotiations.

"So we ask the government and the people of Britain and our family, to do whatever they can to enter into negotiations with these people to buy back our lives." . . . MORE

I think that they should be appealing to France.
France did a great job of getting a French Yacht back from the pirates!
