Familiar headline: "UN ship attacked off Somalia"

Somalia's pirates are attacking food relief shipping again, as reported here:
"About five pirates armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades tried to hijack the UN-chartered ship."

He said the attack took place off the Somalian coast on Monday after the ship had discharged its cargo.

The MV Rozen, which was on its way to Kenya, transported food rations for the World Food Programme (WFP) to drought victims in Somalia. Choong said the ship managed to out-run the pirates and also rammed their vessel.
I believe this is the same attack reported here.

Meanwhile the UN urges action, but falls short of doing something useful. Like, say, organizing something...
