Somali Pirates Take Two Tankers

While one of these captures made the news earlier today, latest reports are that a Norwegian-owned chemical tanker was taken in addition to the smaller Greek-owned chemical tanker known to have been captured. U.S. Navy 5th Fleet sources confirm both captures.

Anyone care to guess where they were taken?


If you guessed south-east of Somalia, you got it. Not as far off-shore as the recent multiple failed attempts, but still down Seychelles-way rather than in the Gulf of Aden.
