Indian Navy Intercept 9 Somali Pirates Involved In Hijacking Iranian vessel

The Indian Navy said it had freed the 23-strong crew of an Iranian fishing vessel which was seized by armed pirates off Somalia.

Video footage released by the Indian Navy on March 30 shows the fishing boat surrounded at sea by several smaller boats.

The Indian Navy also released photographs of what it says are the pirates after being detained on the boat.

The Al-Kambar 786 was southwest of the Yemeni island of Socotra, in the Arabian Sea, on March 28 when it was reported to have been boarded by nine pirates, according to a naval statement on March 29.

The vessel was intercepted by the navy’s INS Sumedha and INS Trishul, leading to “over 12 hours of intense coercive tactical measures” forcing the pirates to surrender, the statement said.

The nine pirates are being brought to India under the domestic law against piracy on the high seas, the navy said in a separate statement on March 30.
