Somali pirate attack on Spanish fishing ship

A 36 crew member Spanish fishing ship was hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia, the vessel owner said. Before the pirates attack, Alakrana - the spanish ship - sent out warning signals on the imminent danger and subsequently the contact with the vessel was lost. Two Luxembourg airplanes belonging to EU-antipiracy mission had a flight above the ship and observed armed pirates on board. This was the second attack on Alakrana in the last month after on 4th of September the crew had to defend while sailing in Seychelles islands waters.
