Pirates Captured

The Indian Navy says it has detained nine suspected pirates after capturing them in the eastern Arabian Sea.

A navy statement says a patrol aircraft spotted the suspects Friday aboard a cargo ship that is believed to have been hijacked and used to smuggle contraband.

An Indian naval ship closed in on the vessel Sunday, and the “overwhelmed” crew did not offer any resistance, and automatic weapons were found on the ship.
