Americans Re-Take Hijacked Tanker, Ninja Reportedly Absent (photo)

There was a recent attempted hijacking of a tanker off Somalia (again).  This one made the news because of the reported 21 Americans on board.

Turns out that wasn’t such a smart move by the pirates…

The US crew of a ship hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia has retaken control of the vessel, according to Pentagon sources.

Unnamed US defence officials said one pirate had been captured by the crew of the Danish-owned Maersk Alabama, which was seized earlier in the Indian Ocean.

The status of the other pirates was unknown, but officials said they were “in the water”.

It looks like we even have an exclusive shot of the action, one which we here at Robot Pirate Ninja, find delectable.

The Rarely Seen Land Ninja finds a reading(!) Pirate.
