THERE'S STILL PIRATES??!!?


WHO KNEW?!

BERLIN, Germany (CNN) — A German warship was involved in fending off Monday’s pirate attack on a Japanese tanker near the coast of Somalia, a spokesman for the German armed forces said Wednesday.

The German warship “Emden” was in the area Monday when it received a distress call from the tanker, called the “Takayama,” said Frigate Captain Roland Vogler-Wander, a spokesman for the German armed forces in Potsdam, Germany.

The distress signal from the Takayama was “Tanker is being threatened by boat with weapons and being fired upon,” Vogler-Wander said.
