Pirates have seized an Indian dhow off the coast of Somalia in the third such incident in a week, a regional maritime official said on Monday.
Andrew Mwangura of the Mombasa-based East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme said his group was seeking more details on the vessel, which he named as the Laxmi Sagar.
"It was taken, I think, yesterday. The crew is Indian ... we don't know how many they are, but the dhows have always got more than 10 people (on board)," said Mwangura.
