US Navy sinks pirate mothership
The guided missile destroyer USS Farragut passes by smoke from a pirate skiff it had just disabled in the Indian Ocean on March 31, 2010. The Farragut sunk the pirate mother ship after it attacked an oil tanker off the coast of the Seychelles. The Farragut is part of Combined Task Force 151, a multinational task force established to conduct anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden.
