Somalia's Shebab capture boat, crew

Somalia’s Shebab Islamist militants have captured an Iranian fishing boat and its crew after it was forced to put into port due to mechanical failure, Iran’s Fisheries Organisation said Thursday. “The 14 crew of the vessel are now in captivity and some of the Shebab militants are on board” the privately-owned boat, fisheries chief Hassan Salehi said, quoted on state television’s website. The report comes after an Iranian fishing boat was captured in March by pirates in Somali waters, in their first successful hijacking in almost three years, according to a UN official.
