Swordfish Terrorism

A new terrorist threat has arisen in Africa. And it comes from the sea. A small, highly-motivated group of swordfish struck back against human interference with their migration path, attacking and puncturing a oil pipeline in Angola. They did enough damage to cause a three-day delay in shipments.
The "attack" forced French oil company Total to declare force majeure, which frees companies from supply obligations due to extraordinary circumstances. ... "It was caused because of swordfish.
So far no swordfish group has claimed responsibility for the pipeline assault. The militant swordfish apparently escaped without being detected, and could be out there plotting their next attack, even as we recover from the shock of this incident.
