Royal Marines capture 13 men aboard 'pirate ship' in Indian Ocean
Sunday 15 January 2012
Thirteen suspected Somali pirates have been captured by the Royal Navy, following an interception off the coast of Somalia.
Royal Marines using speedboats boarded the pirate vessel after it ignored warnings to stop. The captured men were found on board, along with a selection of weapons.
Royal Navy anti-piracy patrols are part of a Nato-led international counter-piracy force in the Indian Ocean, where Somali piracy remains a major threat to international shipping.
