More on latest Somali pirate capture

The pirates so far have made no demands since hijacking the United Arab Emirates-registered MT Lombigo near Adale, about 150km north of the capital.

An El Ade port official, Ali Beere Adow, said the MT Lombigo, which carries a Panamanian flag and had a crew of 32 Filipinos, had off-loaded its cargo.

"About 20 armed pirates on two speedboats attacked the tanker and then scaled it. After 10 minutes I could see the tanker commandeered to the high seas," said Jimale Kaahin, a fisherman who said he witnessed the hijacking.
