The offer to advise on a film about his own life was too irresistible for a retired Somali pirate.
Mohammed Abdi Hassan, also known as Big Mouth, was detained at Brussels international airport on Saturday after a sting operation in which undercover agents persuaded him that they wanted to make a documentary about his acts of piracy.
He is now in custody over his alleged involvement in the hijacking of a Belgian ship in 2009.
