Somali Pirates: Hijacked Ship "Asian Glory" Underway Again

A report that the Somali pirate hijacked car carrier Asian Glory is underway again:
The abducted British-flagged ship Asian Glory has ventured into the open ocean, heading south of the Somali coast, Bulgarian media reported. The cargo ship, whose crew includes eight Bulgarian sailors along with 10 Ukrainians, five Indians and two Romanians, was moored neared the coast until February 17, reports said.
Last time underway she was reportedly used as a "mother ship" for pirate boats as set out here.
