This Week in Piracy
From the AP:
"It's been a busy, profitable week for : They hijacked one South Korean bulk carrier Wednesday, released another South Korean cargo ship Thursday and let a hijacked Thai ship go Saturday after getting a ransom."
But that's not all folks:
"Nearly a dozen ships and over 200 crew remain in the hands of pirates, including the hijacked Ukrainian arms ship MV Faina, for which pirates have demanded an $8 million ransom.
U.S. warships are still surrounding the Faina to keep the pirates from unloading its cargo of battle tanks and heavy weapons."
Maybe it's a good time to take a long position in grappling hooks, peglegs, eyepatches and parrots?
