Two Ships Feared Hijacked

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..

Details were vague, and it is uncertain how many crew members were on board the boats.
