Pirates off the coast of Somalia seized a Danish cargo
Pirates off the coast of Somalia seized a Danish cargo ship with eight Russians among its 13 crewmembers, the Sovfracht Maritime Bulletin reported on Saturday.

The web site said the dry-cargo ship was registered in the Bahamas and in addition to the Russians had four Estonians and a Georgian aboard.

Pirates are increasingly active in the waters off Somalia, where more than 60 ships have been attacked so far this year resulting in the seizure of around 30 vessels. The east African nation has no effective government and no navy to police its coastline.

The Russian frigate Neustrashimy (Fearless) joined international patrols in the waters off the Somali coast last month as part of attempts to crack down on the piracy.
