Incident: Maersk Alabama attacked again

A container ship, not otherwise identified, is fired upon while sailing 600 NM NE of Mogadishu in the Indian Ocean.
Pirates armed with guns chased and fired upon a container ship underway with intent to hijack. Crew took all anti-piracy measures and the onboard security team returned fire. The pirates finally aborted and moved away.
