MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somali pirates said on Tuesday they had seized a yacht in the Indian Ocean with a British couple aboard and were taking the vessel to the Horn of Africa nation with a view to demanding a ransom.
The European Union counter-piracy force operating in the Indian Ocean said it had spotted a yacht 200 nautical miles (370 km) from the Somali coast and they were trying to establish if it was the vessel that sent out a distress call early on Friday.
