Maersk Alabama Attacked Again

No Navy SEALS required this time: The Maersk Alabama—the U.S. ship whose captain was freed from Somali pirates after a dramatic rescue attempt in April—was attacked a second time by Somali pirates on Wednesday. Guards on board the ship repelled the assailants with gunfire. A spokesman for the E.U. Naval Forces said that the second attack was “pure chance.”
