|American crew members aboard a U.S.-flagged ship regained control of the vessel hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia Wednesday, FOX News confirms.|
Good for them! I thought I saw another story a week or two ago (maybe further back) where a crew of different nationality also foiled pirates trying to take their ship.
I don't know anything about maritime laws. Are merchant vessels allowed to carry arms for protection? The story said the ship had no weapons on board.
