Turkey's military says navy commandos aboard a frigate have captured 13 pirates in the Indian Ocean.
The military says the commandos aboard Turkey's TCG Gelibolu stopped the pirate vessel on Sunday as it sailed off the Seychelles on a route being used by a Turkish freighter heading to Mombassa, Kenya.
The commandos captured the pirates, destroyed their two skiffs and confiscated other pirate material.
The military says the pirates were photographed throwing weapons and ammunition overboard, but didn't say how close the pirates were to the freighter.
"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address
