Pirate attacks


Off Tinidad & Tobago here, teenage fishermen beset.

Off Bangladesh, crew mutiny kills 7 as set out here:
A group of six fishermen seized control of a trawler off southern Bangladesh and attacked the other eight crew members, throwing them into the sea to die, a survivor said Sunday.


Mohammad Nurunnabi, who said he treaded water in the Bay of Bengal for nearly 24 hours before being rescued by a passing boat Sunday, described his survival as a "return from death's door."

After four days of fishing, six newly hired crew members suddenly attacked the eight other fishermen, tied their hands and threw them overboard some 50 kilometers (30 miles) off shore near St. Martin's island, he said.
It's rough out there.
