Ukraine's Foreign Ministry appealed to Britain, France, the United States and NATO to help free a ship and its crew seized by pirates on October 18 near the coast of Somalia, a Ukrainian diplomat said Friday...
...The cargo ship Panagia, sailing under the Liberian flag and carrying a 22-member Ukrainian crew, was hijacked this week 90 miles off the eastern coast of Somalia by Somali pirates while transporting coal from South Africa to Turkey.
I wonder if this vessel is the same one that was seized by Somali pirates in 2002 as reported here?
UPDATE: Thanks to Mudville Gazette's Dawn Patrol!
UPDATE2: In addition to the seized MV Pagania, the pirates seem to have capture another ship - the MV San Carlos as noted here. Initial report of Panagia capture here.
