Somalia Indian navy kills 2 pirates and rescues Merchant Vessel.

An Indian Navy ship has thwarted a pirate attack on a merchant vessel with ten Indian crew members in the Gulf of Aden, in which two of the eight Somali pirates were feared killed and the rest arrested, Navy sources said on Friday.


The attack on the Norwegian-owned merchant vessel -- M V Maud, flying the Liberian flag -- took place about 225 nautical miles east of Aden around one am on Thursday, the sources said.

    Let them slaughter each-other for fun at home. The civilized world needs to be free to travel the oceans in peace More..

  • The Indian navy is the only one with BALLS to tackle these pirates that I have seen so far, pity they didn't sink the pirate vessel with the others on board, high time the rest of the international forces short these shitbags on sight, and when will the cargo crew get themselves armed.
