So­mali pi­rates seize ship

Townsville Bulletin - - World Snapshot -

AN un­usu­ally large group of 30 to 50 So­mali pi­rates last night seized an In­done­sian ves­sel and used it in a failed bid to hi­jack a sec­ond ship. The pi­rates first hi­jacked the bulk car­rier Si­nar Kudus in the Gulf of Aden with 20 In­done­sian sailors on board. ‘‘ De­tails of the at­tack are not known at this time but ini­tial re­ports from the crew stated that 30 to 50 pi­rates had boarded and taken con­trol of the ves­sel,’’ the EU Navfor force said in a state­ment.
