Korean Ship Hijacked by Somali Pirates

Monday, October 18, 2010

According to a report from The Korea Times, a South Korean fishing boat was hijacked by Somali pirates Oct. 9 in waters off Lamu, Kenya, which was considered a relatively safe maritime area, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said. Two South Koreans identified only by their surname Kim — one, the 54-year-old owner of the ship and the other, the 67-year-old captain — were on board the 241-ton trawler Keummi 305.  Also on board were two Chinese and 39 Kenyans.
