    NEW DELHI: A European Union warship rescued an Indian dhow and 15 mariners from the captivity of Somali pirates after a three-day action in the high seas recently.

    On January 17, the EU NAVFOR warship FGS Luebeck located an India registered dhow which was used as a pirate mother- ship to target a Dutch merchant vessel, MV Flintstone, earlier on the same day.

    Thread moved, since I'm assuming the incident happened in the Indian Ocean.
