Pirate Fail!


British and US naval forces have rescued an Italian ship hijacked by Somali pirates, says the Italian foreign ministry.

The 56,000-ton bulk carrier Montecristo was hijacked 620 miles off Somalia on Monday by pirates in a small boat, according to the owners.

The ministry said that 11 pirates had been detained.

Italy has announced plans to station military personnel on ships passing through the area after this incident, or so NPR said this morning.
