Pirates seized a Taiwanese fishing boat with  14 crew from Vietnam, China, Indonesia and Taiwan, in the most southerly and  ambitious raid by Somali pirates yet, European naval forces said Friday.

Fred,
If this refers to the 'FENG GUO 168' it turns out this was a false alarm. The owners reported it as hijacked after they had been without contact with the ship for 2 days. However, by Friday afternoon the owner had changed its tune forcing the naval body to issue a fresh statement confirming that the boat had in fact not been hijacked at all.
Regards
John J.
