By Piracy

An attack of Somali pirates on an Italian merchant vessel sailing Thursday from Djibouti to Oman was thwarted by marines, told the spokesman of the Italian Navy.
Speed vessels with 6 Somali pirates onboard attempted to board the Italian ship sailing near the Gulf of Aden when they were spotted by an offshore patrol vessel.
A navy spokesman added that "neither the crew members nor merchant vessel have reported damage and the ship is now out of danger".
