Cameroon Intervention Force... intervenes

...and did a very fine job this time, too.
Cameroon's military killed four pirates who had attacked a fishing vessel off the Bakassi peninsula, destroying their speedboat and seizing a stash of weapons, the Ministry of Defence said on Thursday.

Three other gunmen injured in the attack by Cameroon's rapid intervention force were taken prisoner and two others went missing, the ministry said in a release read over state radio.
This is a vast improvement over previous efforts by the Rapid Intervention Force against piracy and cross-border raiders. What a difference a year (and training, and regional cooperation) makes.
