Dutch battleship Hr Ms Evertsen can be seen in the background as the Dutch Special Forces transport Marines and Navy staff on speedboats to and from the Fade I cargo ship, a WFP (World Food Programme) vessel delivering 5,000 tonnes of food aid to Somalia. Many aid ships have been hijacked by pirates in these waters, and the Dutch Navy monitor the vessels to try and prevent further attacks.
