Five pirates were captured, and eight were killed. The Samho Jewelry, en route to Sri Lanka from the United Arab Emirates, was seized at the weekend. Aboard was a crew of eight Koreans, 11 Myanmar nationals and two Indonesians. REUTERS

    Hats off to the South Koreans. They have shown the world navies how to tackle the problem of piracy.

    Cobra Friday, 21 January 2011 01:24 PM

    On the contrary, Kenny, I think the Yanks should take a cue from the Koreans, join hands with the rest of the navies and put a full stop to this menace once and for all!
