US Navy frigate captures 5 pirates near Seychelles

US naval forces say they've captured five pirates after exchanging fire with them, sinking their skiff and confiscating a mother ship.


The USS Nicholas came under fire early Thursday from pirates in an area west of the Seychelles. The US Africa Command said the five pirates seized would remain in U.S. custody on board the frigate for time time being. (AP)
