Somali based pirates have reportedly captured yet another merchant vessel, possibly carrying military vehicles and spares to Kenya.

According to local reports the Ukrainian-owned, Belize cargo ro-ro Faina was expected in Mombasa on September 27.

Reports quote Mombasa-based Andrew Mwangura of the Seafarers Assistance Programme as saying: "It was sailing from the Baltics and as usual, the pirates were armed on a speedboat when they seized the ship, but we do not know where they have taken it."

A report from the Russian wire service Itar-Tass the crew consists of three Russians, 17 Ukrainians and one Latvian citizen. Another Russian report says the 1978-built, 10,931 gt ship was about 30 T-72 tanks and other military hardware and spares.
