Somali Pirates vs. Egyptian Fisherman: guess who wins?


Via Wired's Danger Room blog, word that one ought not fck with Egyptian fisherman if one is a Somali pirate:

A group of Egyptian fishermen apparently escaped from their high-seas captors the old-school way, overpowering the pirates and seizing their weapons.

Reuters has the scoop on how it went down, plus a quote from "an associate of the pirates" (nice!) who told the agency the Egyptians made a run for it after seizing the pirates' weapons. "The two Egyptian ships sailed away after a fight with my friends," said the associate, who gave his name to Reuters as Farah.

Note to Pirates: Don't Mess with Egyptian Fishermen
