Somalia pirates hijack Indian commercial vessel
John Steed, the regional manager of Oceans Beyond Piracy, a non-government organization, said the Indian-flagged vessel was heading to Somalia shores from Dubai, the United Arab Emirates at the time of hijack.
"We have received information about the hijack of Indian vessel with 11 crew members on board.
"All crew are Indians and were hijacked off the coast of Somalia on April 1," Steed told Xinhua.
There were no details of the crew or destination but some reports said that attack happened some 50 km south of the port town of Hobyo. ■
