One of four bullets from injured captain shot by S. Korean Navy: Coast Guard

One of the four bullets removed from the injured South Korean captain of a chemical freighter hijacked by Somalis last month was shot by South Korean Navy commandos during their raid on the ship in the Arabian Sea, the South Korean Coast Guard said Monday, wrapping up a probe on five captured Somali pirates.

Seok Hae-kyun, the skipper of the 11,500-ton Samho Jewelry, has drawn keen national attention since South Korean naval special forces stormed the ship on Jan. 21 to free it from Somali pirates. (Yonhap News)
