Somali pirates seize Greek-owned ship in Gulf of Aden

Somali pirates have seized a Liberia-flagged and Greek-owned ship with 24 people aboard in the Gulf of Aden, officials said on Wednesday.

The ship, managed by Eurobulk Ltd and named Eleni P, was carrying iron and sailing from Ukraine to China via Singapore. Of the 24 people on board, two were Greeks and the rest Filipinos, the company said.

A security officer for Eurobulk, who declined to be named, told Reuters that 10 people had jumped on the ship at approximately 0510 GMT on Wednesday.

"We don't have any information on the safety of the crew," the officer said.
