In an update to this story on the hijacking of a chemical tanker with twenty-eight North Koreans aboard, Fox News is reporting that a Somali pirate has said that the captain of the tanker, who was shot during the hijacking, has died. [UPDATE: Maritime Global Net is reporting that the captain himself was also a North Korean; such a thing is not necessarily a given, considering the multinational nature of many ship crews. Times Online also has the story, with an oddly inappropriate photo.]
The hijacking occurred about 250 kilometers or so off the Seychelles Islands. The Somali pirate says the tanker is headed for Harardhere, which is a coastal town in central Somalia facing the Indian Ocean.
