Once again the Indian Navy takes on the pirates. In it's most recent encounter, 23 scallywags were captured. The Indian Navy came under fire for sinking a pirate-manned vessel last month. Apparently the fishing trawler was recently comandeered by the scurvy-dogs just hours before it came under the gunsights of the Indian warship.

As the Indians continue to shoot-up the high seas, analysts and policy-makers continue to ponder the pirate problem. Meanwhile about 20 vessels are still being held captive by these seagoing gang-bangers.
