Security team unloads on Somali pirates (VIDEO)

A video shared on YouTube last week shows a security team unload on multiple ships carrying Somali pirates as they attempt to hijack a cargo ship.

One speedboat can be seen coming toward the cargo ship as the security team takes aim and opens fire. The speedboat then crashes into the cargo ship before finally retreating. But moments later, a second speedboat makes an unsuccessful attempt at pirating the ship.

The incident is believed to have taken place in 2012 in the Indian Ocean, but the video only recently surfaced following an attack on an oil tanker off the coast of Somalia last month. The video has since been viewed more than 11 million times in three days.
