Pirates pick on the wrong French ship.

Somali pirates attacked a French military flagship Wednesday and were surprised when it didn't surrender.

The lightly armed pirates had mistaken the ship for a cargo ship in the dark and thought it would be easy pickings, but soon found themselves outgunned.  Officers managed to capture one of the two pirate boats, and the other escaped.  Maybe they'll try to rob a police station next.
