Russian warship enters Somali waters

Russian warship enters Somali waters
The Russian warship 'Neustrashimy' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:RFS_Neustrashimy_(FF_712).jpg) has arrived in the troubled waters off Somalia, where it will conduct anti-piracy patrols. Seven NATO vessels are already monitoring the area which is notorious for hijackings. The Russian vessel may be used to help intercept a Ukrainian freighter captured a month ago with 20 people onboard.
The pirates originally demanded a ransom of $US 20 million, which was later reduced to $US 8 million.They have also threaten to blow up the ship and its crew if a rescue attempt is made.The 'Faina' was apparently transporting tanks and weapons to Kenya.But it is thought the cargo was intended for southern Sudan, which is under an international arms embargo...>>
