24 Chinese sailors on board hijacked vessel rescued

Panama Flagged VesselsBeijing (PTI) Twenty-four Chinese crew aboard a Panama-flagged cargo ship, hijacked by Somali pirates in the Arabian sea, have been rescued. MV Full City was hijacked yesterday 450 nautical miles off the Mumbai coast by the pirates, but were forced to leave the vessel as they panicked seeing naval ship patrolling the area, Andrew Mwangura, Maritime Editor for Mombasa-based Somalia Report, said. "The pirates entered the MV Full City at midday on Thursday but the crew members confined themselves on seatbelt forcing the pirates to leave the ship after they reportedly saw naval ship which was patrolling the area," Mwangura was quoted as saying by the Xinhua news agency. The Gulf of Aden, which links the Indian Ocean with the Suez Canal and the Mediterranean Sea, is the quickest route for more than 20,000 vessels travelling annually between Asia, Europe and the Americas.
