Pirate Attack

Here is a CC of a very seriouc pirate attack on a commercial ship in Bangladesh. Does anyone out there know further details about this event?

" Optical cable laying barge Swissco-12, with 27 crew near Chittagong -- attacked by 60 armed pirates who steal provisions. (Sat. April 30 2005)"

In general, there is a very disturbing trend of pirates who are now kidnapping the Captain and Officers of commercial ships. Previously only the cargo was at risk. Seems that the bad guys have realized the value of the ships crew as well. SE Asia and the Straits of Mallaca are the hot bed of this kidnapping activity.
