New York, Feb 9 (ANI): Somali supermodel Iman has made a stand against Somalian pirates, and wants the world to be aware of their wrongful deeds.

Iman, who is married to Brit singer David Bowie, said that it was painful to see her homeland so lawless, with the kids not getting AIDS drugs from Keep a Child Alive's "Mother Africa" campaign.

But what she finds more horrific is the way pirates make millions from oil tankers.

"Paying their ransom sends the wrong message," the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

"The Somalis do not lack audacity. Unfortunately, they haven't put it to good use - like putting a government together," she added. (ANI)
