Security forces from northern Somalia killed a pirate and wounded two others during a shoot-out on Sunday with hijackers aboard a Panama-flagged ship, a local government official said. One soldier was killed.
Somali pirates have hijacked more than 30 ships so far this year and received ransoms totalling up to $30 million.
In the highest profile case so far, ransom talks are continuing after they seized a Ukrainian vessel, the MV Faina, which was loaded with 33 T-72 tanks and other weaponry.
