Maersk Line Ltd issued a statement saying it believes the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama was hijacked. The vessel was en route to Mombasa, Kenya, when it was attacked about 310 miles off Somalia’s coast. U.S. government sources said the ship was attacked about 7:30 a.m., and the closest U.S. Navy warship was about 300 nautical miles away. There has been no action taken against the pirates, even with a task force present in the region, the area is too large to monitor all the time. Pirates are gangsta.
