Modern day pirates tried to hijack a cruise ship off the African coast of Somali.

Two boats full of pirates approached the Seabourn Spirit about 100 miles off the Somali coast and opened fire while the heavily armed bandits tried to get onboard, said Bruce Good, spokesman for the Miami-based Seabourn Cruise Line, a subsidiary of Carnival Corp.

The ship escaped by shifting to high speed and changing course.

The attackers never got close enough to board the Spirit, but one member of the 161-person crew was injured by shrapnel, cruise line president Deborah Natansohn said.

How was these two inflatable boats expecting to board this tall cruise ship? Can we see some form of sea marshal in the future to return fire at these sea bandits?
