Somali pirate kidnap victims the Chandlers plan trip's finish

A couple from Devon held hostage by Somali pirates are planning to finish their round-the-world sailing trip.

Rachel and Paul Chandler were seized from their yacht near the Seychelles, in October 2009, and held separately for more than a year.

The couple, formerly of Tunbridge Wells, Kent, said they would be "defeated" if they stayed at home after the incident.

They showed the damage their vessel sustained during their kidnapping, including bullet holes from when they were shot at.
