Somali pirates attacked a tanker in the Gulf of Aden on Saturday, but NATO forces chased them down and freed 20 Yemeni fisherman the pirates were holding on another hijacked boat. A second ship was also reported to be under attack by pirates in the Indian Ocean, further southeast near the Seychelles islands. The latest violence underscores the dangers in the seas off the Horn of Africa nation. Pirates from anarchic, clan-ruled Somalia have attacked more than 80 boats this year and still hold 15 cargo ships and over 280 crew members hostage.
