Danish Warship Sinks Pirate Ship Boat


A DANISH anti-piracy warship has rescued seven suspected pirates whose boat had broken down in the Gulf of Aden and then sank their heavily-armed vessel.

Danish soldiers seized several anti-tank rockets and AK-47 assault rifles from the pirate ship, whose engine had failed 90 nautical miles from Yemen, a television reporter aboard the Absalon navy ship said.

Unfortunately they will be handed over to the Yemen coastguard. They most likely will get a slap on the wrist and sent on their merry way.

Heck, Yemeni Pres Saleh may give them "another" ship. Just sayin...

Thanks to GP for video link.
