From the Vesseltracker web site news section, 2 March 2010:
". . . the Absalon, sunk a Somali pirate "mothership" in the Indian Ocean, a NATO spokesman said Monday. The Absalon, flagship of NATO's counter-piracy efforts off the Horn of Africa, disrupted a piracy attack in the Somali basin on Sunday and then scuttled a mothership," the spokesman said. The motherships are used to move attack teams into an area from which they can launch raids on passing ships. This was a very well executed operation," said Commodore Christian Rune, commander of NATO's anti-piracy mission.
