Somali Pirates Hijack Yacht in Seychelles

Moving farther away from the naval patrols guarding the coast of Somalia, pirates today hijacked a yacht near the Seychelles, in the Indian Ocean, with two crew members on board. Via Reuters:
NAIROBI (Reuters) - Somali pirates have hijacked a yacht from the Seychelles with two men on board, a maritime official said on Wednesday.

The yacht left the Seychelles in February en route to Madagascar but disappeared soon after, Andrew Mwangura of the East African Seafarers Assistance Program said.

He named the two men on board as Gilbert Victor and Andre Conrad, both from the Seychelles.

"The ill-fated yacht is presently under tight security, anchored next to Garacad, Somalia," he said.

Please pray for the protection and rescue of these hostages and all the other victims of piracy.
