Hijacked Crew Re-take Vessel from Somali Pirates

Hosted by

Pentagon officials say the crew of a US-flag cargo ship has re-taken the vessel from pirates who seized it after a three-hour chase 300 miles off the coast of Somalia. Refusing to confirm the story, Mearsk CEO John Reinhart said that the crew, though unarmed, is “trained in security details on how to deal with piracy by speed and the way we operate.” Journalist Daniel Sekulich is author of the upcoming Terror on the Seas: True Tales of Modern Day Pirates.
