Risky SKorean raid saves entire crew from pirates

• AP
At dawn, South Korean special forces packed into a small boat approached a hijacked freighter in the Arabian Sea. Commandos scrambled up a ladder onto the ship, aboard which Somali pirates were armed with AK assault rifles and anti-tank missiles. A South Korean destroyer and hovering Lynx helicopter provided covering fire. When Friday's operation ended five hours later, 21 hostages had been rescued, eight Somali pirates killed and five assailants captured.
