Incident: New Legend Honor fired upon

The New Legend Honor is fired upon by "pirates in speedboats" a NATO spokesman said. He spoke in the context of attacks in the Gulf of Aden. The Chinese owned cargo ship is registered in Panama. (AP, 4/21/09) "The Canadian frigate HMCS Winnipeg and the British frigate HMS Portland stopped the attack with the help of their helicopters. The pirates escaped."
