Somali pirates have murdered two of their #seafarer hostages in cold blood for the first time ever, according to Navfor, the European Naval force patrolling the Indian Ocean.

A spokesman told the BBC that pirates shot dead two Filipino crewmen in late January in retaliation for a failed rescue attempt.

In recent days pirates seized what could be their most precious cargo yet of crude oil, worth £140m.

Security correspondent Frank Gardner reports from Navfor headquarters at Northwood on the losing battle against piracy.
