Maritime watchdog: Somali pirates seized 2 ships

A maritime watchdog says Somali pirates have hijacked a Panamanian-flagged bulk carrier with 19 crew members, the second vessel seized in a day.
Noel Choong of the International Maritime Bureau says the bulk carrier was attacked off southern Somalia late Monday. He says the attack occurred just three hours after pirates hijacked a UK-flagged chemical tanker in the Gulf of Aden.
He said Tuesday the IMB was still waiting for an official report.
