(NAIROBI, Kenya) - Ecoterra International reports that a motorized sailing vessel, ABDUL RAZAK with 9 crew of Indian nationals, was captured by Somali sea-shifta or pirates.

Marine monitors reported today from Somalia that the 40m ship was sea-jacked on her way from Kandala to Dubai.

No information concerning the condition of the crew was immediately available.

So far the vessel had been reported only as missing or lost at sea by the owner.

A gang from Garacad, the reportedly notorious pirate den at the Indian Ocean coast of North-Eastern Somalia, is now commandeering M.S.V. ABDUL RAZAK.

It is not yet clear yet if the small cargo ship will be held for ransom or if the gang will misuse her as pirate mother-ship.
