(User Submitted) – Somali pirates attempted to grab a French tanker yesterday, and failed—after the crew locked themselves in the control room.

The attack took place about 100 miles off the coast of Tanzania on a liquefied petroleum gas tanker with 14 men on board. Somali pirates are currently holding more than a dozen ships for ransom.
