MADRID – The Spanish government says a hijacked trawler has been taken to port in Somalia with pirates still in charge of the vessel.
The Spanish owned fishing boat Alakrana was hijacked by pirates early Friday. It is being monitored by two navy warships, rescue force commander Gen. Jaime Dominguez said.
Dominguez also said at a press conference Sunday that two suspected pirates had been captured as they navigated a small boat in the vicinity of the Alakrana. It was not clear if the two had come off the boat or were on their way to it.
Dominguez did not specify which port the Alakrana had arrived at.
