N.Korean Cargo Ship Hijacked in Gulf of Aden

A North Korean cargo ship has been hijacked by Somali pirates in the Gulf of Aden just south of the Yemeni coast.
The European Union Naval Force says pirates on Wednesday seized the 4,800-ton ship MV Rim owned by Libya's White Sea Shipping and that the vessel is now being taken to the Somali Basin.
So far there have been no reports on the nationalities or the number of crew members aboard the ship. Anti-piracy forces are said to be closely monitoring the situation.
