Gulf of Aden – A Dutch naval helicopter from the warship Harer Majesteits Evertsen forced a ship of pirates to stop in the Gulf of Aden by firing warning shots.

The frigate plays a leading role in the European Union mission against piracy in the Gulf of Aden.
 
Sailors from a Norwegian frigate then boarded the ship, where they seized weapons and fuel.

The pirates were not arrested because they were not caught red-handed and could not be brought to justice.
