Greenpeace activists face piracy charges

Dutch-flagged Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise was seized by Russian border guards on September 19 within Russia's exclusive economic zone, a day after two Greenpeace activists scaled a drilling rig in the Pechora Sea, the southeastern part of the Barents Sea. Federal investigators have initially launched a maritime piracy case against the vessel’s crew.
