Dutch prosecutors announced Sunday they have launched a criminal investigation into five suspected Somali pirates for allegedly hijacking a South African yacht and plan to prosecute them in the Netherlands.

The five men, aged between 20 and 30 years, were being held on the navy ship Amsterdam, whose crew arrested them last month and were to be transported to the Netherlands later Sunday, the national prosecutor's office said in a statement.

The Yacht, Choizil, was hijacked off Tanzania's coast and later run aground by pirates on Nov. 7.
