Wanna-be pirates take a swim.

I’m sure everyone’s read about the container ship Maersk Alabama being taken over by Somali pirates then repossessed by her crew of 21 fine Americans. But have you heard this…

Late Wednesday morning, military sources told CBS News that the crew has regained control of the vessel by overpowering the pirates, taking one pirate into custody and throwing three overboard.

Unnamed US defence officials said one pirate had been captured by the crew of the Danish-owned Maersk Alabama, which was seized earlier in the Indian Ocean.

The status of the other pirates was unknown, but officials said they were “in the water”.

Owned.
