Pirates have seized a British Virgin Islands cargo ship with a mainly Sri Lankan crew of 25 off the Oman coast on Tuesday, foreign media reports quoted the EU's naval force patrolling the region as saying.

The ship was hijacked approximately 120 nautical miles off the coast of Oman, the EU naval force said in a statement.

The crew of 23 Sri Lankans, a Filipino and a Syrian were held along with the 11,000-tonne Bermudan-flagged Talca, which had been heading from Egypt to Iran, it said. (Daily Mirror online)

    I think it is time for Sri Lanka Navy to teach these Pirates a lesson.

    This is becoming a huge joke. The EU Naval Force and all the so called powerful EU nations appear to have been emasculated by a few Somali crooks.

    The world must unite against the pirates. Somalia must be occupied by NATO, Chinese and Russian forces for 5 years.

    Wipe them out, US, Russia and China must do It

    Looks as if the curse that should befall on the Govt. of Sri Lanka for their wrong doings is accidentally being experienced by innocent Sri Lankans in the form of they being hyjacked and so forth.
