Dozens of pirates aboard a Mozambican ship have been captured by India’s navy after a gun battle in the Arabian sea.

The Indian navy says it seized 61 pirates and rescued 13 crew from the vessel, which had been used as a mother ship from where pirates launched attacks around the Indian Ocean.

Attacks by pirates off the Indian coast have become increasingly more violent.

More here.

These pirates attacks come mainly from Somalia, which is just to the north of Mozambique. If you don’t know a lot about Somalia, let me clue you in about it a little.   Since 2006, Islamists with allegiance to al-Qaeda, have been gaining more and more control of that country. Read all about it here.

Mozambique isn’t any better. That country is loaded with Islamists as well. The Mozambique flag includes the image of an AK-47.

And some say that Islam is a ‘religion of peace’…   Yeah, right…
