    French navy seizes 11 suspected pirates

    The French navy captured 11 suspected pirates off the coast of Kenya on Wednesday, the French Ministry of Defense announced.

    The navy tracked pirates overnight after they attacked a ship called the Safmarine Asia. The French launched a helicopter from the frigate Nivose on Tuesday night, then seized the suspected pirates Wednesday morning, the statement said.

    Both the European Union and the United States have been patrolling the region since an upsurge in piracy off the coast of Somalia last year.

    Hold them hostage and threaten to kill them if the piracy continues. Let's fight fire with fire.

    I mean, how many pirates can there be that are willing to die for their theivery ?

    MOMBASA, Kenya – Somali pirates vowed to hunt down American ships and kill their sailors Wednesday and French forces detained 11 other hijackers in a high-seas raid, raising tensions a day after an abortive attack on a U.S. freighter loaded with food aid.

    Pirates fired grenades and automatic weapons at the Liberty Sun, but its American crew successfully blockaded themselves inside the engine room. The ship was damaged in Tuesday's attack but escaped and was heading to Kenya under U.S. Navy guard.

    A pirate whose gang attacked the aid ship admitted Wednesday that his group was targeting American ships and sailors.

    "We will seek out the Americans and if we capture them we will slaughter them," said a 25-year-old pirate based in the Somali port of Harardhere who gave only his first name, Ismail.

    "We will target their ships because we know their flags. Last night, an American-flagged ship escaped us by a whisker. We have showered them with rocket-propelled grenades," boasted Ismail, who did not take part in the attack on the Liberty Sun.

    The move comes after U.S. Navy sharpshooters killed three pirates Sunday to win the release of a hijacked American sea captain, Richard Phillips of the Maersk Alabama.

    The French forces, meanwhile, launched an early morning attack on a pirate ship after spotting it Tuesday with a surveillance helicopter and observing the pirates overnight. The raid thwarted the bandits' planned attack on the Liberian cargo ship Safmarine Asia, the French Defense Ministry said.

    The statement called the pirate vessel a "mother ship" — usually a seized foreign ship that pirates use to transport speedboats far out to sea and resupply them. The ship was intercepted 550 miles (900 kilometers) east of the Kenyan city of Mombasa.

    The 11 detained pirates were being held on the Nivose, a French frigate among the international fleet trying to protect shipping in the Gulf of Aden.

    France has traditionally been aggressive in fighting piracy — this was its ninth military operation against pirates. Three Somali pirates were in the French city of Rennes on Wednesday facing judicial investigation after being captured in a hostage rescue Friday. Several other pirates are also in French custody after being seized last year.

    Wow, the anti-French cliches in just two posts. That's gotta be some kinda
    record. I'm gonna start a thread called "French!" and just let people react.

    BTW, don't mean to imply that I'm French. Fucking frog bastards.
