A Canadian warship, the Winnipeg, helped chase down pirates off Somalia who had tried to attack a Norwegian tanker. The frigate pursued the pirate ship for seven hours after the British vessel scared it away from the 80,000-ton tanker on Saturday. The pirates were finally caught early Sunday after throwing their weapons overboard. After being questioned, they were released because they were outside Canada's jurisdiction and NATO has no mandate to make arrests.
