An Evening with Michael Scott Moore

In 2012, while in Somalia researching a book on pirates, Moore was captured and held for 977 days, with a ransom set at $20 million dollars.

Journalist and author Michael Scott Moore traveled to Somalia on a grant from the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting to research a book on piracy.  He was abducted by a local gang of pirates in January 2012 in the town of Galkayo.  The gang holding Moore subsequently demanded $20 million for his release.

American officials and the German Foreign Ministry collaborated on negotiations with the pirates until Moore was freed on September 22, 2014.  It took 977 days for Moore to be released
