HMS Cornwall rescues hostages from pirates
Five hostages and their fishing vessel have been freed from the clutches of Somali pirates by a naval boarding party from HMS Cornwall.
The operation to free the fishermen was staged when their hijacked boat was spotted acting suspiciously by a South Korean merchant vessel, who then made a call to the British warship, HMS Cornwall for help.
