The Maersk Alabama, the container ship that was hijacked by Somali pirates in April, was attacked again today while 350 miles east of the Somali coast. CNN reports, "Pirates fired automatic weapons at the ship...Guards aboard the ship fired back, repelling the attack." In the April incident, the Maersk's captain gave himself to the pirates as a hostage and was rescued in dramatic fashion five days later when Navy snipers stepped in and killed three of the pirates.
