The Chandler's

Ever since the Somali pirates seized British couple Rachel and Paul Chandler of the coast of Seychelles Island just hundreds of nautical miles off the from Somali shores. The British Somali community have been fighting for the release of the couple. Setting up Facebook pages one of them is  'Somali's for the freedom of Chandler's' and campaigning for the couple.
After 13months of captivity the couple have been released. The ransom money of 1million dollars have been paid by numerous ''people''.
Half by the Somali community in Britain.

Now the question  is with the pirates receiving ransom money, would this mean now Somali-British people are ideal future targets for the pirates from now on?
