TAIPEI The crew of a Taiwanese fishing vessel fought against armed Somali pirates to retake their ship after it was hijacked off East Africa, Taiwan authorities said Sunday.
The 290-tonne Chin Yi Wen with a crew of 28, including nine Chinese, eight Filipinos, six Indonesians and five Vietnamese, had been out of contact since Friday, the foreign ministry said.
But the crew managed to overwhelm the six armed pirates and retake control of their ship.
The Somali pirates fell into the sea, Tsay said, quoting the fishing boat owner, adding that details of the saga and the fate of the six pirates were not immediately clear.

“the fate of the six pirates were not immediately clear.”
They’re fish food.
The sailors will miss their old “chums”.
Oh, I think the pirates’ fate was abundantly clear...
I guess the fish must like dark meat...
The pirates fell into the sea. Oh, golly, we didn’t mean to do that!
Well, if Obama can do it with bin Ladin, then I guess fishermen can do it to Somali pirates.
Where’s the evidence?
Who really cares what happened to the pirates, as long as they didn’t make it to shore safely its all good.
The Somali pirates fell into the sea ... and the fate of the six pirates were not immediately clear.
Oopsie, they fell.
“The Somali pirates fell into the sea...”
Poetical. It’s like something out of Kipling!
“The Somali pirates fell into the sea, Tsay said, quoting the fishing boat owner, adding that details of the saga and the fate of the six pirates were not immediately clear.”
Someone has figured out how to handle the situation.
I love happy endings!
How do Russians unofficially handle this kind of thing after some Wodka, plenty of ammo, and plenty of free-time in the sunshine at sea?
Do NOT expect a fair fight or ANY decorum or restraint.
Do they use the Phalanx on them? Why, yesss...!
A great, raucous time!
Ship decks can be very slippery.
And that's how you handle "pirates". Aaarg!!
They fell into the sea.Accidently. LOL
Water version of Shoot, Shovel, and Shut-up.
Don't know the circumstances, but a friend of mine who was a WWII vet told me about working with the "Huks" while stationed in the Philippines. They would slither out of camp at night with a knife between their teeth and come back the next morning with "Japanese ears" as a testament to their evening's work. They would cut the throat of one man in the foxhole and take his ear. The next morning the rest of those in the foxhole would realize they could have been like him. It was devastating to their morale.
They did the same thing to Jap soldiers who were occupying the U S Army’s barracks at Fort Stotsenberg (Later Clark Air Base). Jap was terrified.
Any way we could hire the Taiwanese navy to take out the rest of the Squatomalian pirates on jihad?
I am gonna steal that LOL
Boy, I'll bet they did. "Accidentally" hogtied and chained too, I would guess. Good riddance.
It's time for a blockade on the entire coastline of Somalia. Any boat leaving port to be instantly sunk, as well as all the other boats in the same port.
The deck must have been wet and they slipped. Wouldn't be surprised if they were trying to steal some heavy pieces of metal had had it tied to their necks when the slipped.
Understand they were commies, but brutal combatants.
I always admired fierce little soldiers. Like the Gurkhas and their skill with the kukri.
That is how the pirates should be handled.
Not brought here and treated like citizens by the corrupt DOJ and supported by taxpayers for the rest of their lives with a probable pardon from Holder and guaranteed citizenship from Obama and free education from Perry.
Of course the crew probably helped them to "fall". If more pirates "fell" into the sea there would be a lot less pirating going on.
Shoot, Splash, Sail away
That’s how you deal with the pirates. Throw them into the sea. Maybe make ‘em bleed a little to get the shark juices flowing.
Sharks eating halal meat. Who knew.
Guess it was “Drown like a pirate” day.
Pirate disposal... Russian style. I love it
Shoot, Sink, and Shut-up.
Slash, splash, dash?
The HUKS were and are Communists. The little Negritos whose village was outside the wire are credited with terrorizing the enemy in their barracks. The HUKS started
life as Hukbong Bayan Laban sa mga Hapon, anti Japanese guerillas; after the war, they showed their true color - Red.
I believe it is called "Shoot, Shovel, and Sink." :-)
Shackle, shove, shove-off.
Oh dear, fast fingers again. Should be “Shoot, SINK, and Shut-up.”

and we were taking on water and had to dump all our chum, too.
Really, they just fell into the sea....We don’t know what happened to them after that...LOL...
This is why the Asians are kicking our arses in the West right now....they’re still a bit barbarous.
How do you think we won the west...by being nice?
We, as a people, better get back our edge or we are done.
I'm sure the crew will get a stern talking to from the Taiwanese version of OSHA when they get back in port.
How careless of them.
The United Nations will be filing human rights violations against the survivors ASAP.
That is an AWESOME video! The Russians used the boat for target practice even opening up using AK-47s!
Very General Pershing!!!
They fell off real good! Kinda like playing walking the plank and they fell off!
The deck must have been wet and they slipped. Wouldn’t be surprised if they were trying to steal some heavy pieces of metal had had it tied to their necks when the slipped.
Bad judgement, stole more chain than they could swim with.
The Somali pirates fell into the sea.....
I hate when it happens !! :o)
Lets hope when they fell into the sea they didnt land on any whales or dolphins and hurt them or you will have a dozen animal rights groups sue ing the ship owner
