South African hostage survivors Bruno Pelizzari and Debbie Calitz are in The Hague today, where five Somali men are standing trial in the International Criminal Court for allegedly kidnapping them off the Tanzanian coast two years ago.

The couple was held hostage by Somali pirates for 20 months before being rescued in June.

Pelizzari is expected to testify in court today and Calitz will enter the witness box tomorrow.

Calitz says she is not scared and that she really wants to come face to face with the men who held her captive.
