Kenya — The European Union Naval Force said Somali pirates hijacked a cargo ship with 15 Indian crew onboard.

EU spokesman Lt. Col. Per Klingvall said Wednesday that the Asphalt Venture lost contact with its owners on Tuesday night. He could not provide further details of the incident.

The ship was headed from Kenya to South Africa when it was attacked off the Tanzanian coast.

Somali pirates are holding at least 16 ships and more than 300 crew members captive for ransom.
