Following another failed penetration of a wide bottomed South Korean tanker, Somali pirates were withdrawn from the tanker at the point of the breach and rendered harmless by South Korean forces.
"Thankfully they were not fully prepared for the encounter", says U.S. State Department official, Dick Ryder. "They came prematurely and unprepared, and they are now suffering with the embarrassment of being caught with their pants down".
After military forces boarded the tanker, the seamen were quickly collected towards the tip of the vessel, and forced overboard into awaiting Kevlar reinforced netting. The experimental netting reportedly worked well, preventing seamen from leaking out of the sack and into the sea.
"We now believe these Somali Pirates will think twice before attempting another penetration, knowing that armed forces are ready to engage them with the same form of protection", says Ryder. "Hijack another wide bottom, and see your seamen brothers unceremoniously collected into an awaiting Kevlar sack at the tip of the vessel".
The experimental seamen capture sack was created by the Trojan company, protectors of unwanted seamen infiltration since 1920.
