US Navy rescues 13 Iranians from pirates

This is likely to cause some red faces in Tehran [BBC]:

The US Navy has rescued 13 Iranian hostages being held by pirates in the Arabian Sea, the Pentagon says.
The 13 were rescued after a distress call was received from an Iranian fishing vessel which had been boarded by pirates over a month ago.
Fifteen suspected pirates were detained and are being held by the US Navy.
Seems the Iranian navy can't protect its shipping against pirates in their own backyard but the US navy can.
