India Captures 61 Somali Pirates

Apologies if this has already been reported.

India captures 61 Somali pirates - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

It seems India is getting on with the job.

Cheers

the firefight 1,100 kilometres from the west coast of India.
One of those two statements may be correct.

Wow, the economy must be real tight for us to sell the USS Ronald Reagan to the Indians!

And in port @ Pearl Harbor no less.

I seem to remember reading that the Indian Navy had a carrier in the works. Has it been launched as yet? The Indian Navy seems to be taking the primary anti-piracy role in the Indian Ocean. Good on em!

IN does have an aircraft carrier (the other one was decommisioned a long time) which is working. Both ex Royal Navy.
Another big one is coming from Russia - Admiral Gorshkov

cheers
