NATO's anti-piracy action in pictures

(B2) Several very instructive short films have just been posted on the NATO TV site to illustrate the commitment of Atlantic Alliance ships in the fight against pirates (Operation Allied Protector). Interesting in particular the 5 "Distress Call" (which allows to follow an alert for a suspicious boat and the daily difficulty of distinguishing fishermen and pilots) or the 7 "Raising the Alarm" (which relates the attack on the Spessart and the speed pirate action). NB: the series currently has eight small 4-5 minute short films.  See here
