Indian navy captures 28 pirates from Thai vessel

Post by Mother Mary on Sun Feb 06, 2011 9:28 am

NEW DELHI -- The Indian navy on Sunday captured 28 suspected Somali pirates from a Thai fishing vessel after a brief exchange of gunfire in the Indian Ocean, an official said.

The navy struck as the pirates prepared to attack a Greek-flagged merchant ship, said Capt. M. Nambiar, a navy spokesman.

The pirates fired at the two approaching Indian navy and coast guard ships, but later displayed white flags and surrendered about 100 miles (160 kilometers) west of the Lakshwadeep islands, Nambiar said.
