Maersk Alabama crew repels pirates

AP is reporting that the American crew of the container ship Maersk Alabama has regained control of their vessel after an attack by Somali pirates earlier today. Word of this was given to AP by the father of the vessel's second-in-command, who spoke with his son aboard Maersk Alabama via telephone. The report also has an unnamed U.S. official saying that the American crew are holding one of the pirate attackers, while three more fled overboard.
