Following the confrontation, small speedboats accompanying the pirate vessel were seen racing into the darkness.

There are presently warships from Russia, India, Malaysia, Denmark and the U.S. patrolling the area. But Somali pirates currently hold 15 ships and nearly 300 crew members.

The hijacked vessels are being held for ransom on the eastern and southern coast.
