Another Incident of Maritime Piracy

Crew wins deadly pirate battle off Somalia - Crew members retake the vessel Dai Hong Dan, a North Korean ship.
The [pirates] had seized the ship's bridge, while the crew kept control of the steering gear and engines, the Navy said.
The ships crew attacked the bridge killing 2 pirates and capturing 5.

Several of the North Korean crew were wounded in retaking the bridge. They are being treated aboard the USS James E. Williams, a guided-missile destroyer that was patrolling the area.

Another example of what you can do with a little determination. My congratulations to the captain and crew of the Dai Hong Dan.
