Following a second attack on a US-flag merchant vessel by Somali pirates, the FBI have released an e-fit image of the man they say is the leader of the pirate gangs.
The man, known only as 'H', has reportedly been placed at #3 on the US Ten Most Wanted list, behind Osama Bin Laden and Sarah Palin's campaign manager.
FBI Special Agent Chip Cleancut, releasing the e-fit image of the wanted man, said, "this man represents a clear and present danger to US merchant shipping, and to the national security of the United States of America. We will catch this man, and bring him to justice".
The shadowy 'H' is currently believed to be in hiding in the NievaarLand coastal region of Somalia. Rumours that the FBI are deploying a covert airborne team to apprehend him have not been confirmed by FBI sources.
