Pirates?

Okay, so I'm sat listening to the radio during my lunch hour at work, and I can't believe what I just heard. An oil tanker ship has been boarded by pirate's and they're holding the crew and the oil hostage for a ransom! It beggers belief. It's hard to understand how they could board a tanker at sea like that. Presumably they must have had automatic weapons etc. What exactly can they do with it though. I mean it's not like they can dock anywhere is it. Maybe they'll put the oil up for sale on e-bay.

Though seriously I hope the crew are alright, these people are obviously very dangerous.
