Captured pirates (French defence ministry)

Pirates hit navy ship 'in error'

A group of Somali pirates has been captured after attacking a French navy ship by mistake, apparently thinking it was a harmless cargo vessel.
"Once they realised they were facing a ship that was responding and was heading towards them, they stopped shooting and attempted to flee."
Admiral Christophe Prazuck
