Two Britons, a husband and wife, were on holiday in Kenya near the border with Somalia, when they were attacked by Somalis who arrived via high speed boat.  According to reports the Somali men approached the cottage where the couple were staying and demanded their money.  The man was shot and the woman was taken in the boats toward Somalia.  Her whereabouts are currently unknown.  While there are conflicting reports on whether the attackers were connected with Al Shabab, the tactics strongly suggest they are pirates who are adapting their tactics to kidnappings on land as the maritime vessels are becoming more difficult to successfully attack.
