North Korean ship fights off pirates

The crew of a North Korean ship used Molotov cocktails to foil a hijacking of their vessel off the Somali coast near Mogadishu.

They were drifting out on the water when ten pirates approached in speedboats. The North Korean captain ordered the engines turned back on and they tried to make their escape, but they were fired at with rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns.

It just occurred to me that "Mogadishu" might sound like someone with a thick regional accent casually and then politely telling you to eat something: "먹어, 드슈." Yeah, I'm weird.
