More pirate news! Ex-Fugee Pras was in Somalia last weekend during Captain Richard Phillips's rescue, shooting a documentary on the pirates — and was almost killed! He told CNN, “We’ve been to Somalia and we’ve seen a couple pirates … our lives were definitely threatened.” He was even more forthcoming on Twitter: "i thought i had a date with death but we manage to come out of it clean we almost got gunned down!"
