The “Frogman Corps” (Frømandskorpset) and the frigate Esbern Snare have been in action against pirates.
The Danish soldiers responded in self-defense, according to the Danish Armed Forces.
The crew of the Danish frigate Esbern Snare was in a firefight with a pirate ship in the waters south of Nigeria’s coast on Wednesday.
No Danish soldiers were injured, but five pirates were hit. Four of the pirates died. One was wounded.
Esbern Snare has previously been based at The Naval Station Korsør, while the Frogman Corps, which is part of the crew, is based in Kongsøre in Odsherred.
The wounded (gay) pirat will properly get a Danish citizenship.
