#Somali Pirates in First Hijack in Years
Local Editor

A freight ship had been hijacked off the coast of Somalia, reports said.

A number of suspected pirates boarded the Sri Lankan-flagged vessel off the country’s northern coast on Monday, residents and officials said.

A spokesperson for the European Union Naval Force, which runs anti-piracy operations in the area, said it was too early to confirm pirate involvement.

If confirmed, it would be the first hijacking of a commercial ship by Somali pirates since 2012.
