游艇救助

2009年4月索马里游艇救援行动

A raid off Somalia was a military operation conducted by France and Germany to retake the Tanit on 9 April 2009, a yacht which had been captured by Somali pirates on April 4, 2009. It occurred during Operation Atalanta, a European Union mission in Somali waters.[2] The pirates had attempted to extract a ransom by holding the yacht's occupants hostage, but were ultimately defeated when the French Navy assaulted them.

200949日,正值欧盟在索马里进行海域执行“亚特兰大”行动期间,法国和德国在索马里海域进行了一次针对解救200944日被索马里海盗劫持的Tanit号游艇的军事突袭。海盗们试图依靠绑架游艇上的人质勒索赎金,但最终被法国海军挫败。

The Tanit, a privately owned French yacht named after the Phoenician lunar goddess, with its 5 crew and passengers was sailing to Zanzibar when it was boarded by pirates on April 4. Among the hostages were a family of three including a 3 year old boy, and two friends of the family who joined them in Aden. The ship's owners, the Lemaçons, started from Vannes in July 2008 and sailed south to the coast of Spain. This was a family trip “to escape consumer society”. They planned to visit Kenya andZanzibar. Even after meeting with a couple whose yacht, the Carré d'As IV, had been captured by pirates, and laterrescued by French commandos,[3] they continued on their journey.

Tanit号是一艘以腓尼基月之女神命名的法国私人游艇。200944日在驶往桑给巴尔的途中被海盗劫持。在亚丁湾时船上共有5名乘客,一对夫妇和他们三岁的男孩以及两个朋友。船主Lemaçons,自20087月开始,从西班牙海岸城市瓦纳向南航行。这是一个家庭旅行“以逃避物质社会”。他们计划访问肯尼亚和桑给巴尔。这对夫妇在被法国特种部队解救后,决定继续完成他们的旅程。

The pirates headed the vessel for the coast but were overrun two days later by a French frigate. French forces attempted to negotiate with the pirates offering them money and offering to exchange the mother and child for a French soldier. The pirates declined this. Instead, they were overheard discussing using explosives to blow up the yacht.

海盗驾驶游艇向海岸行驶,但两天后法国护卫舰发现了他们。法军试图与海盗进行谈判,向他们提供资金并用一名法军士兵交换船上的母亲和孩子。可惜的是海盗拒绝了法军的方案。相反的,法军无意的听到海盗要炸毁那艘游艇。

50 commandos were sent from France to a French base at Djibouti on April 9, in readiness for the assault. Joined locally by 20 more commandos, they parachuted from a C-130 Hercules plane into the sea, to be picked up by three French warships that had been tracking the pirates, together with a German frigate equipped with hospital facilities.

200949日,50名特种兵从法国本土投送到法国在吉布提的军事基地,由C-130大力神运输机将20多名特种兵投送到了当地的海面上。分别登上了三艘负责监视海盗的法军舰艇和一艘德国医疗船。

The French attempted to negotiate with the pirates, and even offered to exchange one of the hostages for an officer. The pirates refused to cooperate, stating that they could get better terms once they reached the coast. Seeing the pirates were uncooperative a sniper on-board one of the vessels managed to shoot down the sails and to damage the mast and the yacht. This the French believed would put them in a better negotiating position, but it created havoc on board, causing the pirates to refuse to accede to any of the French demands.

法国人试图与海盗进行谈判,甚至主动提出交换船上的人质。但是海盗并不合作,因为他们一旦达到岸边就可以得到更好的条件。看到海盗不合作,狙击手成功的在甲板上击落了海盗船上的桅杆。法国人原以为可以获得更好的谈判筹码,却激怒了海盗,造成海盗拒绝了法国人的任何要求。

Allegedly, after threats to execute the hostages were heard, the French Navy decided the next day to board the boat and free the hostages. French commandos attacked the hijacked vessel from different directions in two speedboats. The pirates opened fire and the special forces team fired back. French naval commandos then boarded the vessel and rescued the hostages.[1]However, Florent Lemaçon, the boat's captain and father of the 3-year old boy, was being held hostage in his cabin. When French commandos entered, they engaged in a shootout with the pirates, during which Lemaçon was killed, possibly shot by the commandos in error.

据称,在获悉海盗威胁杀害人质后,法国海军决定在第二天登船解救人质。法国特种部队乘两艘快艇,从不同方向袭击被劫持的游艇。海盗开火攻击,而特战队还以颜色。法国特种部队成功登船并救出人质。Florent Lemaçon是游艇的船长船长同时也是孩子的父亲,却被挟持在他的客舱里,特种部队进入客舱,不小心将Lemaçon与海盗一起打死。

After the fighting ended the four freed hostages were taken in one of the frigates, to Djibouti, and from there transported back to France. Three pirates were taken to Rennes for questioning.

战斗结束后释放的人质乘坐一艘护卫舰,前往吉布提,从那里运回法国。被抓获的三个海盗被带到雷恩进行审问。

In total, 70 men of the French naval forces, including men of the French commando Hubert, French frigates Aconit, Floréal and Commandant Ducuing and German frigate Mecklenburg-Vorpommern participated in the operation.

据统计,法国海军特种部队Hubert70名特种兵,护卫舰AconitFloréal  Commandant Ducuing以及德国护卫舰Mecklenburg-Vorpommern参加了这次行动。
