Pirates! Break out the...

...cutlasses sonic blasters and prepare to repel boarders! Cruise ship attacked by RPG-wielding Somali pirates, fights back with a device that blasts the buggers with noise. More traditionally, the captain attempted to run down the pirates' boat, too. Dunno what to make of this, though:
One of the rockets certainly hit the ship — it went through the side of the liner into a passenger’s suite. The couple were in there at the time so it was a bit of an unpleasant experience
I would have thought they would have been spread thinly over the bulkhead, but perhaps it didn't go off.
