Video – Somali pirates taken out by armed security at sea

Somali pirates chased off in a hail of gunfire

A clip has been posted of a recent incident that took place on a cargo ship in the Indian Ocean.

The viral footage shows a group of Somalis, on two speed boats, attempting to board the ship but instead were chased away in a hail of gunfire by a private security team.

There are many stories of pirates attacking ships and holding crew and cargo for ransom, but this is one of the few occasions to date that anybody has actually seen them in action.

This group were not expecting to be met by a highly trained, well armed security team of former special forces soldiers.

We hear about these Somali Pirates out there, but have never really seen them in action, until now.
