UAE Special Forces stormed into a cargo ship that was hijacked on Friday in the Arabian Sea, rescuing the crew members and taking the pirates into custody, according to the official WAM news agency. The anti-terror squad working in collaboration with the US Fifth Fleet carried out the operation that forced the pirates to surrender on Saturday. The ship was sailing to Dubai from Australia when it was attacked by the pirates.
