Taiwanese boat, 14 crew seized by pirates off Madagascar

The Feng Guo was attacked 250 nautical miles from Antisiranana, Madagascar, EU-Navfor said in a statement."This is the most southerly vessel to be pirated since" the joint EU military operation moved into the area.

Forces said the boat's owners had confirmed its capture, and said alongside its Taiwanese skipper, there were eight Vietnamese, three Chinese and two Indonesians among its crew.
The latest capture means "Somali pirates are currently holding 18 ships with 383 hostages," officials added.
