UK ‘SBS’ special forces storm tanker and detain stowaways in Channel | Reuters

Special Boat Service troops boarded the oil tanker named the Nave Andromeda by the Isle of Wright off of Southern England. The Defense Secretary and Home Secretary of England authorized the special forces to board the ship in order “to safeguard life and secure a ship that was subject to suspected hijacking,” stated Defense Secretary Ben Wallace. Seven stowaways were detained, and reports stated that the crew was “safe and well.” The UK’s Special Boat Service is considered to work very closely with the Special Air Service Regiment, which is one of England’s most top-secret forces.
