Pirates have seized a British Virgin Islands cargo ship with a mainly Sri Lankan crew of 25 off the Oman coast on Tuesday, foreign media reports quoted the EU’s naval force patrolling the region as saying. The ship was hijacked approximately 120 nautical miles off the coast of Oman, the EU naval force said in a statement. The crew of 23 Sri Lankans, a Filipino and a Syrian were held along with the 11,000-tonne Bermudan-flagged Talca, which had been heading from Egypt to Iran, it said.   www.dailymirror.lk/index.php/news/2594-pirates-seize-ship-with-lankans.html
