A Thai oil tanker reported missing two days ago has been recovered with all of its crew members safe but pirates who hijacked the tanker took its cargo and damaged communications gear, the International Maritime Bureau said on Monday.
With terror threats from skies
looming large in the wake of 9/11 in the US, government is

arm it with powers to shoot down a hijacked aircraft.
Russian authorities flew the suspected hijackers of the cargo vessel Arctic Sea to Moscow on Thursday and took them for interrogation, dismissing suggestions that the ship may have been carrying weapons.
