"British and US naval forces have rescued 23 hostages from an Italian ship hijacked by Somali pirates. The 56,000-tonne bulk carrier Montecristo was hijacked 620 miles (1,000km) off Somalia on Monday, according to the owners. The Royal Navy boarded the ship and met no resistance, before detaining 11 suspected pirates, the UK's Ministry of Defence said." (10/11/11)
