Danish special forces on board a navy warship have destroyed a small boat full of suspected Somali pirates.

Denmark’s TV2 channel said that special forces officers captured the alleged pirates, before sinking the vessel.

Seven pirates were taken into custody and are being sailed to Yemen, according to TV2.

The officers were on board the Danish warship HDMS Absalon, which is part of a NATO task force set up to combat the increasing problem of piracy in the Gulf of Aden.
