Is this still 2006, or are we back in the 1600's? A U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer actually pursued and captured a pirate ship in the Indian Ocean near Somalia. This comes about two months after a cruise ship was attacked in the same general area. In that case, a rocket propelled grenade was fired at the Seabourne Spirit. Although it did explode on the deck, no passengers were injured.
No word on whether the prisoners will have to walk the plank.
