Two hostages of suspected Somali pirates died after a rescue effort by the Danish navy, an operation that freed 16 other hostages, the Danish military said Tuesday.

A Danish warship, the Absalon, tasked with patrolling waters near the Somali coast to ward off piracy, fired warning shots against what the navy described as a pirate “mother ship” that failed to stop, the military said.

Military personnel then boarded the vessel and found 17 suspected pirates and 18 hostages, two of whom were critically wounded.
