Foreign naval forces launched an attack on Somali pirates near their base in the town of Hobyo that left at least four dead and six wounded, witnesses and pirates said on Thursday.

Foreign anti-piracy forces attacked a suspected pirate “mother ship” at around 1700 GMT on Wednesday, “The foreign forces combating the pirates attacked a boat and killed four people last night,” Mohamed Jama, a local elder, told AFP.

This is a major and substantial change to the usual policies – and could finally hint at the concerted shorebased action needed to hit pirates ashore.
