Somali Pirates: Water Hoses and Good Luck Foil Attack

An attack on a bulk carrier foiled by crew efforts and some faulty pirate ammo, as reported here:
Somali pirates attacked a 26,000-tonne, Panama-flagged bulk carrier in the Gulf of Aden on Saturday, but were driven away by sailors spraying them with water-hoses, NATO alliance staff said.

The NATO officials, on board a Portuguese warship protecting shipping lanes from piracy, said an unexploded rocket-propelled grenade landed in the commanding officer's cabin during the attack and bullets were fired at the ship.
