SANAA, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- A Libyan-flagged cargo ship with unknown crew members was hijacked Wednesday in the Gulf of Aden, Yemen's coast-guard said.

"The Yemeni coast-guard was informed by one of the international naval forces for combating piracy that Somali pirates hijacked a Libyan cargo ship today off the Yemeni coast in the Gulf of Aden," an official of the coast-guard told Xinhua by phone.

The official, without giving his name, said the coast-guard operation room did not receive any more information yet, such as the number of the ship's crew, the kind of its cargo or where it was sailing.
