US warship disrupts pirate attack on Maltese flagged ship
The American Navy destroyer USS San Jacinto (CG 56) on Monday disrupted an attack by nine Somali pirates on a Maltese-flagged vessel, the Navy said.
"The American Navy vessel arrived quickly and followed the pirate skiff in a helicopter. Navy sailors boarded the skiff and arrested the pirates, who threw their weapons into the sea.
The USS San Jacinto has detained 22 pirates so far in the last seven days. The pirates were turned over to Yemeni Naval Forces."
