Them Somalian Pirates are up to their old tricks again:
NATO says pirates unsuccessfully tried to hijack a large cargo ship off the Horn of Africa. A statement from the alliance says the 74,000-ton bulk carrier Calm Seas was attacked Thursday north of the Somali port of Bosasso in the Gulf of Aden. The pirates chased the Greek-owned vessel for about an hour, but did not succeed in boarding the ship. The Calm Seas, built in 1999, is 740 feet long. On Wednesday, pirates boarded the 17,000-ton U.S.-flagged cargo vessel Maersk Alabama. They later fled from the ship, but took its American captain hostage. Also on Wednesday, a Yemeni fishing boat with 13 crew was hijacked by about 20 Somali pirates off the Somali town of Berbera, NATO said.
F*ck a Thug ass African Pirate.
