Arrgh! Chinese Navy to fight Somali Pirates

via Shanghai Daily | 上海日报 — English Window to China News.

Chinese Navy personnel, members of the 10th naval escort flotilla, wave goodbye from on deck of the missile destroyer Haikou before departing yesterday from Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province. The Haikou, along with the frigate Yuncheng, is bound for the Gulf of Aden and waters off the coast of Somalia to protect merchant vessels against pirate attacks. The ships will relieve the Wuhan and Yulin from the Chinese Navy’s ninth flotilla, which has patrolled the area since July. The new warships will join the Qinghaihu, a supply ship in the region.
