Ashland (LSD 48) captures trigger-happy pirates

330 nautical miles off the coast of Djibouti, a visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) team pulls suspected pirates from the sea for transport back to the amphibious dock landing ship USS Ashland (LSD 48). Ashland while operating, was fired upon from a skiff manned by suspected pirates. Ashland returned fire and disabled the skiff.
