Somali Pirates Drown With Ransom

Five of the pirates who hijacked a Saudi supertanker drowned with their share of a $3million ransom, a relative said Saturday, the day after the bundle of cash was apparently dropped by parachute onto the deck of the ship...

The drowned pirates' boat overturned in rough seas, and family members were still looking for four missing bodies, said Daud Nure, another pirate who knew the men involved. (Associated Press)

Huh. Such delicious schadenfreude. Almost too easy, but I'll go with the obvious with a spiritual twist I guess: "Live by the sword..."

Indeed. Nice of them to remove their carbon footprints from this poor world and thereby helping to save Mother Gaia!
