Maersk Line, the Danish carrier’s US subsidiary that operates the 1,098 teu boxship, confirmed late Wednesday that the crew had retaken the vessel. “We are able to confirm that the crew of the Maersk Alabama is now in control,” Maersk Line spokesman Kevin Speers told the media. “The armed hijackers who boarded this ship earlier today have departed. However, they are currently holding one member of the ship’s crew as a hostage. The other members of the crew are safe and no injuries have been reported.”

US warships are steaming to the scene, where negotiations are ongoing to secure the captain’s release, according to the latest reports from the Pentagon. Details on the pirate attack and the subsequent action by the crew are still sketchy, but reports received by satellite phone from the ship suggest that at least one pirate was seized by the crew and subsequent negotiations led to the pirates’ departure. Cmdr. Jane Campbell, a spokeswoman for the US Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet, told the media that this was the first pirate attack “involving US nationals and a US-flagged vessel in recent memory”.
