Pirates take Saudi Tanker and crew
CNN reports Pirates in the Arabian Sea took a Saudi-owned oil tanker with 25 crew aboard.
The article says that two of the crew are British, but doesn't say the numbers of the other nationalities aboard. That seems a little racist to me. I can understand if they were American, maybe even Canadian, but Britain is not us, and it implies that we really only care about white English speaking people and everyone else can go to hell.
A multinational naval force has been patrolling the Gulf of Aden to stop pirate attacks.
Sunday a Japanese 20,000 ton vessel was seized off Somalia's coast.
eleven vessels are being held for ransom by pirates.
