Maersk Alabama Targeted A Third Time By Pirates

Pirates attempted to board the Maersk Alabama merchant ship for a third time yesterday.

From Wired’s Danger Room:

The container ship Maersk, you’ll recall, was the scene of one of the more dramatic pirate rescues in recent memory. After it became the first U.S. flagged ship seized by pirates in 200 years, Navy sharpshooters aboard the U.S.S. Bainbridge liberated Captain Richard Phillips with just three shots to end a five-day standoff in the Indian Ocean. That all happened on Easter Sunday 2009, no less.
