A look at the vessels seized by pirates off coast of Somalia since Sunday:

_MV SEA HORSE: Lebanese-owned cargo ship attacked and captured Tuesday by pirates in three or four speedboats.

_MV IRENE E.M.: Greek-managed bulk carrier with at least 21 Filipino seamen aboard seized in rare overnight attack early Tuesday. The St.-Vincent and Grenadines-flagged bulk carrier was sailing from Jordan to India when it came under attack.

_EGYPTIAN FISHING BOATS: Two Egyptian fishing boats hijacked with a total of 36 crew, at least 24 of them Egyptian. It was not exactly clear if those ships were seized Monday or Sunday.
