Somali pirates become international joke
Dumb Somali pirates attacked a French military ship by mistake.....idiots!
(AP) No one was wounded by the volleys from the Kalashnikov rifles directed at La Somme, a 3,800-ton refueling ship, said Rear Admiral Christophe Prazuck, a military spokesman.
La Somme "was probably taken for a commercial ship by the two small skiffs" some 250 nautical miles off the coast of Somalia, said Prazuck.
"They understood their mistake too late," Prazuck said.
These pirates just keep getting dumber and dumber. They must be getting more desperate. What fun for the French guys on that ship!
