Modern-Day Pirates Threaten World Shipping
Modern-day Somali pirates have been capturing merchant ships for ransom. Suddenly, in a move that rattles the world’s economies, giant oil and liquid natural gas tankers are mysteriously taken off Arabia and Africa, far out at sea in the darkness of night. Held for record ransom demands, these ships are taken to strange new pirate hideouts along the North coast of Somalia. When pirates fire on the responding international task force ships and aircraft, the world watches as an entirely new type of war at sea begins.
