Dozens of pirates aboard a Mozambican ship have been captured by India’s navy after a gun battle in the Arabian sea.
The Indian navy says it seized 61 pirates and rescued 13 crew from the vessel, which had been used as a mother ship from where pirates launched attacks around the Indian Ocean.
Attacks by pirates off the Indian coast have become increasingly more violent.
Meanwhile, a Bangladeshi ship hijacked by pirates last year has been freed after a ransom was paid. . .
