Video yay-ness over here. (For non-Dutch: all text and explanation is in Dutch; 10 pirates were arrested, none hurt or killed, to be handed over to German authorities. The beginning of the video shows (in both video and audio) a nice amount of weapons fire; this is covering fire for the landing Marines and the 'clearing' of the ship's bridge. Ship's crew were hiding in a safe room and emerged unscathed after the Marines had completed clearing the ship.)
Korps Mariniers FTMFW!!
