Somali pirates have seized another ship, a Greek bulk carrier, despite a large international naval presence in the waters off their lawless country, a regional maritime group said on Wednesday.

The East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme said the Greek vessel was taken on Tuesday in the Gulf of Aden, the second ship hijacked since the spectacular capture of a Saudi supertanker at the weekend that was the largest hijack in history.
