Somali pirates hijack first ship since 2012 – Telegraph

Pirates have seized a merchant ship in the Red Sea and have taken it south towards Somali waters, in the first successful hijacking in the region since 2012.
The vessel, identified as the MV Marzooqah, sent a distress signal on Saturday evening in the Red Sea and was then turned towards the Gulf of Aden, said Andrew Mwangura, secretary general of the Seafarers Union of Kenya.

The number of attacks by Somali pirates dropped sharply in 2013, largely because of an international naval effort. No ships were succesfully hijacked.
