Search and seizure team
Members of a visit, board, search and seizure team from the guided-missile destroyer USS McFaul (DDG 74) inspect the Indian-flagged vessel Faize Osamani off the coast of Oman April 5, 2010. The vessel is a suspected pirate mothership accused of firing small arms and rocket-propelled grenades at the motor vessel Rising Sun. The Sailors took ten suspected pirates into custody and rescued eight crewmembers that had escaped from the dhow. McFaul is supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation operations in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility. (DoD photo courtesy of the U.S. Navy/Released)
