US Warships surround Hijacked Cargo Ship

An unspecified number of US warships along with USS destroyer Howard have surrounded the hijacked Ukranian cargo vessel, Faina. The cargo vessel is carrying a large amount of weapons such as RPGs, anti-aircraft guns, AK-47s and 33 T-72 tanks. The shipment was destined for Sudan not Kenya as previously stated. Kenya is only a transit point for the shipment. The Somali pirates are demanding $20 million in ransom.
