Somali pirates have hijacked one more vessel Wednesday - a Danish-owned cargo ship with 20 Americans.

The news was reported by CNN, and has been confirmed by the US government.

Somali pirates have been especially active in the last few days as they have hijacked five vessels since Saturday, including the UK-owned cargo ship Malaspina Castle, which had 16 Bulgarian sailors out of a crew of 24.

No ransom has been asked yet for the Bulgarian nationals.
