EU Navy arrests seven suspected pirates, destroys boat


"Sailors on the EU Naval Force's flagship, ITS San Giusto, decided to investigate the skiff after observing a ladder and roughly 20 storage drums onboard. The drums were full of fuel and water, vital supplies for pirates at sea. The ladder was also a clue that the vessel was likely a pirate ship, said Lt. Cmdr. Jacqueline Sherriff, a spokeswoman for the EU Naval Force.

"'Fishermen don't generally carry ladders,' she said."
