Crew members of the Maersk Alabama are seen during a press briefing at the Mombasa port, Kenya, Monday, April 13, 2009. In a daring high-seas rescue, U.S. Navy snipers killed three Somali pirates and freed the American sea captain being held at gunpoint. The operation was a victory for the world's most powerful military but one that is unlikely to quell the scourge of piracy off the African coast. (AP Photo/Karel Prinsloo)
