Somalis storm pirated ship

Somali troops stormed a pirate-held Panamanian vessel off the coast of Puntland rescuing the crew unharmed.

Two soldiers were injured in the operation and the two pirates surrendered after running out of ammunition. Another Ukrainian vessel, the MV Faina, is still held by pirates who are threatening to blow up the ship if they do not receive $20 million in ransom.
