“The four Americans aboard a yacht hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia are dead,” CBS News’ national security correspondent David Martin reports.

CNN is also saying it has been told by Defense Department officials that the Americans have been killed.

Update at 11:55 a.m. ET: The Los Angeles Times says the four Americans’ bodies are now aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, off the Horn of Africa. And it adds that:

“For nearly a decade, Scott and Jean Adam’s home had been the 58-foot custom-made sloop the Quest. Although they docked every so often in Marina del Rey to pick up mail and see friends, the couple spent most of their time sailing to far-flung locales such as the Galapagos Islands, Tahiti and New Zealand.

“Posting photos and information on their website, they raved about their travels aboard the Quest. ‘We’ve decided to … explore Fiji like petals on a flower,’ they wrote about their 2007 trip to the South Pacific.

“Now, ‘This is all of our worst nightmares,’ said Scott Stolnitz, a friend of the couple.”
