NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - It was a different outcome after Somali pirates attacked the Maersk Alabama for the second time in seven months today.
The European Union's naval force says guards on board the U.S.-flagged cargo ship repelled the takeover attempt.
Pirates hijacked the Maersk Alabama last April and took ship captain Richard Phillips hostage for five days.
Meanwhile, a self-proclaimed Somali pirate says the captain of another ship that was captured earlier this week has died of wounds suffered during the hijacking.
The pirate says the captain died Tuesday night from internal bleeding.
The EU Naval Force has said the Virgin Islands-owned chemical tanker the Theresa was taken on Monday with 28 North Korean crew members on board.
