Pirates captured a Belgian vessel about 370 miles off the Somali coast on Saturday.

Pirates captured a Belgian vessel about 370 miles off the Somali coast on Saturday.

The Pompei, with 10 crew onboard, was hijacked en route to Seychelles.

In a separate incident, Dutch naval forces intervened to fend off an attack on a Greek tanker, the Handytankers Magic. The pirates were reported to have fired assault rifles and grenades on the tanker.

A navy vessel pursued the pirates, who were on a small skiff, back to their mothership, a hijacked Yemeni fishing dhow.

The Dutch commandos boarded the hijacked dhow and briefly held the pirates before freeing 20 Yemeni hostages who had been forced to sail the ship.

A NATO spokesman, Alexandre Fernandes told; ?We have freed the hostages, we have freed the dhow and we have seized the weapons...The pirates did not fight and no gunfire was exchanged."

Earlier in the week, French naval forces captured a pirate mothership in the waters off southern Somalia as attacks on shipping intensified outside the Gulf of Aden.
