A Chinese ship attacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia has defended itself with the help of international forces.
The pirates tried to seize the Zhenhua 4 on 17th December, but they were not counting on the valiant defence led by Captain Peng and his crew in a four-hour battle at the end of which international forces came to their aid.
Having escaped the pirates, the Zhenhua 4 is now somewhere in the Indian Ocean, from where Captain Peng came through on a satellite phone. He was asked how it all began.
