French raid pirate ship, US seeks to freeze assets

Pirates strike again

MOMBASA, Kenya – The U.S. and its allies battled Somalia’s pirates on two fronts Wednesday, with French forces seizing a bandit mother ship and Washington seeking to keep the marauders from their spoils. Another U.S. freighter headed to port with armed sailors aboard after pirates damaged it with gunshots and grenades.

One pirate issued a new threat to “slaughter” Americans, and Tuesday’s assault on a second U.S. cargo ship, the Liberty Sun, underscored the outlaws’ ability to act with impunity despite international naval operations against them and mounting concern worldwide over how to end the escalating attacks off the Horn of Africa.
