Somali pirates have seized a 20 thousand tonne German container vessel in the Indian Ocean.

The ship has a crew of 24 people on board - it was attacked around 400 miles off the southern Somali coast, between the Seychelles and Kenya.

It's the latest in a series of attacks on commercial containers in shipping lanes in the area.

Heavily armed gangs in the Horn of Africa have hijacked dozens of vessels there and in the Gulf of Aden, earning themselves million of dollars in ransoms.
