Alleged pirate skiffs destroyed

A Turkish frigate intercepted 13 suspected pirates in the Indian Ocean on Sunday, destroying their two boats and seizing their equipment, the Turkish military said.

The pursuit began when the frigate Gelibolu, part of a Nato force in the region, detected a ship and two skiffs, "considered to be used in piracy", following the route of a Turkish commercial vessel sailing to Kenya, 250 nautical miles north-east of the Seychelles, the statement said.

Thirteen suspected pirates "were rendered ineffective", their equipment was seized and the two skiffs "were destroyed so that they cannot be used again for activities of piracy", it said.

Since 2008, an international flotilla of warships has been patrolling the Gulf of Aden, one of the globe's busiest maritime trade routes, to stop Somali pirates from hijacking commercial vessels.
