South Korea has conducted an exercise off its southeastern coast to help improve the country’s ability to deal with threats from Somali pirates.

Two commercial ships, military personnel and government officials participated in the drill off Busan.

The exercise involved a mock pirate attack on a merchant ship, which was then rescued by troops using helicopters and high-speed boats, the ministry said.
