Engagement off the coast of Eyl, Somalia results in injury to attackers

A Typical Somali Speedboat A Typical Somali Speedboat

Early yesterday, approximately four speedboats, loaded with men, sped towards a Nigerian naval anti-personell battleship. The speedboats, for whatever reason, began opening fire on the sides of the thick ship.

The men aboard this "patrol ship" fired an on-board deck machinegun, injuring about four of the attackers. Seven men in total were injured , one is reported to have been in "possible lifeless" condition.

No crew on-board the patrol ship was injured. Unfortunately, an RPG did hit a petrol[gasoline] tank on-board the ship, igniting a tank which burst into flame. As of today, the patrol ship will be in port in Kenya awaiting repairs.
