KARACHI: Somali pira­tes have hijacked a Pakistani boat, US media reported on Tuesday.

It said the hijacking came hours after the pirates hij­acked an Indian vessel along the coast of Somalia near a village named El Hur.

Abdillahi Ahmed Ali, mayor of Somali town Hobyo, confirmed the incident while talking to Voice of America, but expressed unawareness about the number of crew members on the Pakistani vessel called Salama 1.

Earlier the pirates hija­cked the Indian vessel MSV Al Kausar.

 

“Al Kausar having 11 crew members is now anchored off the nearby village of El Hur. The Salama 1 was reportedly headed to the same area with an unknown number of crew,” Mr Ali said.
