Pirates strike again off Somalia, kidnap crew of 26 from Thai ship


Pirates off Somalia strike again as reported here:
Pirates have hijacked a merchant ship off Somalia, kidnapping its 26 crew, in the fourth attack in as many days off its coastline as the U.N. Security Council this week urged regional powers to intervene.
The International Maritime Bureau (IMB) said on Thursday a Thai-flagged ship carrying a cargo of sugar from Brazil to Yemen was hijacked close to the coast north east of Mogadishu early on Monday.
The IMB told Reuters 26 crew of mostly Thai origin had been kidnapped at gunpoint and a ransom demanded for their release.
