Cambodian ship seized by pirates

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is investigating a Cambodian cargo ship reportedly hijacked by pirates off the Somalian port of Berbera in the Gulf of Aden on Wednesday.

Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said he believed the cargo ship was registered in Cambodia and flying the Cambodian flag. “However, there were no Cambodian people reported on board,” Koy Kuong said. “And I think it belongs to a foreign owner.”

The cargo ship MV Layla S was hijacked on Wednesday along with a crew composed of Indian, Pakistani, Sri Lankan, Somali and Syrian nationals.
