Pirates 'looked ready to kill'


Two of the crew members from the American cargo ship seized by Somali pirates last week have been speaking about what happened.

Captain Shane Murphy and Colin Wright were dramatically rescued from the Maersk Alabama after it was attacked.

They spoke exclusively to Jim Sciutto from ABC News about the moment the pirates boarded the ship.
