In this handout image supplied by the MoD Crown Copyright, Skiffs are destroyed after The Royal Navy Type 23 Frigate HMS Portland (F79), while conducting counterpiracy operations in the Gulf of Aden as part of Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) Task Force 151, intercepted and boarded two suspicious skiffs preventing a possible pirate attack on June 2, 2009 in the Gulf of Aden. In coordination with a Spanish maritime patrol aircraft, Portland identified, pursued and subsequently conducted a boarding of the two vessels where they were found articles that indicated the skiff had been involved or was about to conduct an act of Piracy, and were clearly not those of an innocent fishing vessel.

GULF OF ADEN (April 10, 2010) The burned out hull of a suspected pirate skiff drifts near the amphibious dock landing ship USS Ashland (LSD 48). Ashland while operating approximately 330 nautical miles off the coast of Djibouti, was fired upon and returned fire disabling a skiff manned by suspected pirates. Ashland deployed a visit, board, search and seizure team to rescue the suspects from the sea. USS Ashland is part of the Nassau Amphibious Ready Group and 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, currently supporting Maritime Security Operations (MSO) and Theater Security Cooperation (TSC) Operations in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations.

Re: Todays Pirates

This reminds me of that group of pirates that attempted to attack a US Navy Frigate...
