Somali pirates? Panama-flagged freighter "disappears"


Reported here:
A Panama-flagged cargo vessel has gone missing in Somalia's pirate-infested waters, a Kenyan maritime official said on Tuesday.

The MV Infinity Marine 1 disappeared some 37 nautical miles off the northeastern village of Ras Hafun in late June, said Andrew Mwangura of the Kenyan branch of the Seafarers' Assistance Programme.

"The last time the ship made contact was on June 26. So far, we do not have any information about the crew," he told AFP.

The vessel, sailing from the United Arab Emirates, was carrying general cargo including food stuffs, iron sheet, generators, batteries, white wood and light vehicles.
