Pirates Attack US-Flagged Cargo Ship Off Coast of Africa

Pirates attacked another US-flagged ship about 300 miles off the coast of Africa today.
The ship was carrying aide to Africa.
CNN reported:

The Liberty Sun, a U.S.-flagged cargo ship bound for Mombasa, Kenya, was attacked Tuesday by Somali pirates, according to a NATO source with direct knowledge of the matter.

The pirates never made it onto the ship. The vessel is now being escorted by a coalition ship, still bound for Mombasa.

The source could provide no details on where the vessel was attacked but said it is suspected the pirates were based on a mother ship somewhere in the area.
