Ooopppsss .... Wrong Ship!

Somali pirates are hijacking again but this time they got the wrong ship. They mistakenly hijacked French Military Flagship. The pirates, who because of the darkness took the French ship for a commercial vessel. Personally, I think that is kinda dumb of them!

The pirates tried to flee when they realized their mistake but were pursued by French forces. French forces captured one of the pirate boats.

The world's naval powers have deployed dozens of warships to the lawless waters off Somalia over the past year to curb attacks by pirates in one of the world's busiest maritime trade routes. I am glad that they are giving attention to this issue because there have been so many victims of Somali Pirates ( a lot of them are Filipino seamen) it is time to give them a dose of what they deserve. Of course, I am happy that they are deploying many warships off the waters of Indian Ocean and Gulf of Alden Coasts because it will mean better security for many seamen including my brother.

Since the end of the monsoon season, pirate attacks are expected to rise because calmer waters allow pirates, who often operate in small fibreglass skiffs towed out to sea by captured fishing vessels, to hijack freighters, trawlers and private yachts.

Let's all hope and pray for the safety of all the working seamen who face the dangers of Somali pirates.
