Two Ships Feared Hijacked

Tuesday, October 25, 2005
Pirates may have seized an oil tanker and another ship carrying food to Somalia at the weekend in the latest of a series of hijackings off the lawless Horn of Africa nation, Reuters reported.. An official told Reuters he was informed of the possible hijacking by colleagues in Dubai where both ships -- one laden with oil, the other with food -- had embarked on their trips. Details were vague, and it is uncertain how many crew members were on board the boats.

The Indian Ocean waters off Somalia are among the most dangerous in the world, with an epidemic of attacks and hijackings in recent months.
