SEAL Team 6 Rescues American and Danish Hostages From Somali Pirates

 U.S. military forces sent helicopters into Somalia in a nighttime raid Tuesday and freed two hostages, an American and a Dane, while killing nine kidnappers, U.S. officials confirm.

American Jessica Buchanan, 32, and Dane Poul Hagan Thisted, 60, had been working with a de-mining unit of the Danish Refugee Council when they were kidnapped in October.

The raid was conducted by a joint team overseen by Africa Command involving Special Operations forces, including Navy SEAL Team Six, the same unit -- though not the exact same individuals -- that killed Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden in May, a senior U.S. military source told Fox News.
