French troops rescued two French hostages in a gunfight with Somali pirates that left one of the kidnappers dead, officials said Tuesday.

Six kidnappers were also seized in the operation, personally ordered by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, to free the men who were abducted from a sailboat in the the Gulf of Aden, off the Somali coast, on September 2.

And that's how it should be done.
