Nigerian Navy action nets 10 pirates | Defense Web

The Praesidium International has reported that the Nigerian Navy was able to recover a hijacked fishing vessel just hours after it was attacked. The Hailufeng 11, a Chinese flagged fishing vessel with 18 crew members on board, lost communication with the Dalian Hailufeng Oceanic Fisheries vessel. The Nigerian Navy was then alerted and sent out the patrol boat NNS Nguru with a team of Special Boat Service soldiers. The troops were able to apprehend ten pirates within 25 minutes and release the crew and fishing vessel.
