|Somali Pirates attacked the German Navy refueler FGS "Spessart", the ship is part of the EU Atalanta mission.
The ship is normally manned with a civilian crew but a small Navy security team was also on board.
The pirates opened fire on the navy ship and tried to board it but did withdraw after the security team repelled the fire.
Then a chase started with the participation of the German tanker and Navy units from Greece and Spain. Finally the German Frigate ?Rheinland-Pfalz? managed to catch and arrest the pirates.
