Private Security Guards Fighting off Somali Pirates
On two occasions in the past few weeks private security guards have fought off Somali pirates off the coast of east Africa. One was a Spanish ship (see "Private Security Fights off Pirates") and the other was the Maersk Alabama (see "Maersk Alabama Sees Off Pirate Attack"). The Maersk Alabama was the ship that was in the news last spring where the captain of the ship was held hostage until rescued by Navy Seals.
