Taiwanese fishermen fight off Somali pirates, retake boat
Some of the 28 crew on the Chin Yi Wen overcame the hijackers then the boat met up with British anti-piracy vessels nearby. Three crew had minor injuries.
The government news agency said the fight happened about 4 a.m. Sunday Taiwan time. That was some 48 hours after the boat was reported missing.
The Central News Agency report cited the island's Fisheries Agency. It said the 260-ton Chin Yi Wen is now heading to Port Victoria in the Seychelles.
Piracy is rife off the Somali coast. Somalia has not had a functioning government since 1991.
