The Somali pirates captured two trawlers which left from the Beruwla Fisheries Harbour last November and December.

The spokesman said that Lakmini-3 and Lakmali fishing boats which left from the Beruwela fishing port were captured by Somali pirates on November 28, 2010.

The released fishermen and boats were brought to Miniko Island off India by the Indian Coast Guards. The fishermen who were handed over to the Indian Police by Sri Lankan High Commission in New Delhi will be repatriated today.
