Spanish Boat Siezed by Somali Pirates



From the BBC:

A Spanish fishing boat with 26 crew on board has been seized by pirates off Somalia, officials in Spain say.

They say the Playa de Bakio – a Basque tuna boat – was attacked about 250 miles (400km) off the coast.

A source from the Basque regional government said the boat was in “international waters”. The fate of the crew is unknown.

Somali coastal waters are among the most hazardous in the world, despite the presence of US navy patrols.
