The Greek merchant marine ministry says pirates seized the MV Saldanha early Sunday, as it headed toward Slovenia with a load of coal.
The ministry says the ship was carrying 22 crew members, their nationalities unknown.
Somali pirates have received millions of dollars in ransom payments during a hijacking spree over the past year.
The attacks have continued despite increased naval patrols by the U.S., European Union and other world powers (source: www.voanews.com).
