Pirates seize boat in Seychelles

Pirates seize boat in Seychelles
Pirates have captured a luxury boat operating in the Indian Ocean Seychelles archipelago after it dropped off tourists on one of its islands.

Pirates have captured a luxury boat operating in the Indian Ocean Seychelles archipelago after it dropped off tourists on one of its islands.

A yacht and its crew of seven has been hijacked by pirates near the Seychelles islands off Africa's east coast, officials said.

Two Kenya-based diplomats said the Indian Ocean Explorer was hijacked by pirates.

One diplomat said the boat was returning from a trip to nearby islands when it was taken.

All seven people on board were from the Seychelles, he said.

It was not immediately clear who seized the ship.

Somali pirates are common in the Gulf of Aden.

But analysts say an increase in foreign warships patrolling the area has forced pirates to shift their operations east into the Indian Ocean, toward the Seychelles.
