A group of pirates got a nasty surprise when they attacked a merchant ship - that turned out to be a German naval vessel.

The pirates fired at the FGS Spessart in the Gulf of Aden, under the impression they were striking a commercial carrier but were met with return fire from German sailors.

The German naval ship then pursued the pirate boat along with other vessels including Greek, Dutch and Spanish naval ships as well as a Spanish marine aircraft and US marine choppers.
A Nato spokesman said: "Poor judgment by the pirates turned out to be a real opportunity for seven nations representing three task forces to work together and strike a momentous blow for maritime safety and security."

After five hours of pursuit, Greek sailors reached the pirates, boarded their boat and seized their weapons.
The seven pirates on the ship were transferred onto the German frigate Rheinland-Pfalz and Nato says they will remain there until a decision has been made about prosecution.

LOL! From the look of the pirate "ship"...a Harpoon would have been a tad overkill.:D

What a bunch of retards, they couldn't tell that German vessel was a warship?
These clowns should have been sharkbait.
