This dramatic video shows UK forces stopping a group of Somali pirates that were trolling for ships in the Indian Ocean on January 13.  A total of thirteen Somali pirates were arrested by a boarding team of Royal Marines commandos following a concerted effort by RFA Fort Victoria and the U.S. destroyer USS Carney to stop the dhow.  Despite repeated warning shots, the pirates continued on but eventually forced to give in.

Note to pirates: If the Royal Navy asks you to stop, you do it.
