From Iran’s Press TV: “A Portuguese ship belonging to NATO named NRP Corte-Real has prevented seven Somali pirates from hijacking a Norwegian oil tanker in the Gulf of Aden . . .
Marine Rafael Silva was the first to climb onto the pirate ship, where he came face to face with two stunned pirates . . .
One of them moved to attack but Silva, 25, tackled and handcuffed him. The other men were restrained on the deck before the Portuguese Special Forces stormed the bridge, manned by two bandits wielding AK-47s . . .
The marines found more AK-47s, rocket propelled grenades, and enough explosives to sink a ship.
The 19 Somalis were disarmed and released upon an order from
authorities in Portugal”
