From The Times:
“Seven of the nine pirates landed on our ship, all with weapons,” Peng Weiyuan, the captain of Zhenhua 4, said in a telephone interview with China Central Television.
“Our crew, who had been well trained and prepared, used water cannon, self-made incendiary bombs, beer bottles and anything else that could be used to battle with them. Thirty minutes later, the pirates gestured to us for a ceasefire.”
“Then the helicopter from the joint fleet came to help us.”
Good lads! I can’t even begin to imagine tackling a load of tooled-up Somalian nutcases ripped to the tits on khat with a crate of Stella empties. Respect is most certainly due.
