In the summer of 1627, two groups of Barbary corsairs raided Iceland, one from Salé, on the Moroccan coast, and one from Algiers. Between them, they killed dozens of people and abducted over four hundred, packing these captives into the cargo holds of their ships and transporting them to North Africa to be sold in the slave markets there. The first place the Algerine corsairs attacked was East Iceland.
