Today from Hiiraan Online:
"Bad day for pirates" video up
Wednesday, May 09, 2012
A video uploaded on Liveleaks.com and said to be taped in the Indian ocean 120 miles off Somalia, shows what the site calls Somali pirates having a "very bad day."
A report by Bloomberg says the incident occurred March 25 and involved the second hijacking attempt within three days on Eagle Bulk Shipping's Avocet.
The video footage was captured by a helmet cam by one member of the four member security team, provided by Virginia Beach, Va,, based Trident Group , Inc.
The Bloomberg report (with much second-guessing on the team's action from people who weren't being shot at with AK47's and RPG's) can be accessed
