Let's hope the warship being sent turns the pirates into crab food.Pirates in the Gulf of Aden Wednesday seized a Russian-operated oil tanker with a crew of 23 that had been on its way to China, the European Union naval force said.
The Liberian-flagged oil tanker Moscow University was hijacked Wednesday morning, the naval force, EU NAVFOR, said. A Russian warship was heading toward the position where the ship was hijacked, EU NAVFOR said.
Yeh, somehow with the Russians involved, I don't see a lotta money changing hands - nor would I count on many live hijackers once the situation is resolved!
