Nous sommes inquiets évidemment.

Le Ponant was heading from the Seychelles to the Mediterranean Sea when pirates raided it in the Gulf of Aden, which lies between Somalia and Yemen.

A spokesman for the boat’s owner, the Compagnie des Iles du Ponant, said there were no holidaymakers on board, and that most of the crew are French or Ukrainian.

French Prime Minister Francois Fillon described it as a “blatant act of piracy”.

He added: “We have relatively large military means in this area. We are mobilised to obtain the release of the hostages as quickly as possible.
