US marines recapture German ship from Somali pirates
US Marines have boarded and seized a vessel hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia, navy officials say.
A group of 24 marines swooped on the German-owned M/V Magellan Star and took control of the ship from nine pirates who had captured it on Wednesday.
There were no casualties during the pre-dawn raid, the US Fifth Fleet said.
