Somali Pirates: Yacht Hijacking

Reported as Somali pirates hijack Seychelles yacht:
Somali pirates have hijacked a yacht from the Seychelles with two men on board, a maritime official said on Wednesday.

The yacht left the Seychelles in February en route to Madagascar but disappeared soon after, Andrew Mwangura of the East African Seafarers Assistance Programme said.

He named the two men on board as Gilbert Victor and Andre Conrad, both from the Seychelles.

'The ill-fated yacht is presently under tight security, anchored next to Garacad, Somalia,' he said.

The pirates have been extending the range of their attacks, and the taking of the Seychelles boat looks like another long-distance strike.
Inside whose OODA loop?
