Suspected Pirates Handed Over to Kenya

Tuesday, January 31, 2006
The United States Navy handed over suspected Somali pirates it captured off the coast of Somalia after firing warning shots at their ship, in the first sign of a military crackdown on Somalia’s anarchic coastal waters.

According to www.angolapress-angop.ao, the suspects, detained at a police station in the coastal city of Mombasa, were handed over to the police on January 29 and could be tried within the following days. A missile destroyer, the USS Winston S. Churchill, and other U.S. naval forces in the area located the pirate ship after receiving a report of a piracy attempt on January 20. After unsuccessful attempts to contact the ship, the pirate ship finally stopped after the destroyer fired warning shots, and the crew effectively surrendered. The navy says sailors discovered small arms on the ship.
