British couple hijacked by Somali pirates

The boat of a British couple was hijacked by Somali pirates, Britain's Sky News reported on Tuesday.

It was reported that Paul and Rachel Chandler, 58 and 55, were heading for Tanzania from the Seychelles as part of an Indian Ocean cruise, a route near Somalian waters, which are notorious for attacks on ships and small boats.

A pirate was quoted as saying that the British couple were in their hands now.

The British Foreign Ministry said it was urgently investigating the event and two Royal Navy ships were now searching the area.

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry said, "We are in touch with the family in Britain and the Seychelles coast guard, which continues to monitor the situation."

An Indian cargo ship was hijacked off the coast of the Seychelles last Wednesday and its more than two dozen crew members have not been heard from since.
