The owner of a Norwegian tanker hijacked off Somalia's coast says there has been no recent word from the ship.
Company manager Per Hansen told the Associated Press Friday that satellite images show the Bow Asir is heading north and that there are no reports of injuries.
Salhus Shipping says its last communication with the ship was an e-mail Thursday saying 16-18 pirates carrying machine guns had gained control.
The company also released a breakdown of the nationalities of the crew.
Salhus Shipping says the Bow Asir has a Norwegian captain. Of the other 26 crew members, 19 are from the Philippines, five from Poland, one from Russia and one from Lithuania.
The Bow Asir was one of two ships hijacked Thursday in the same area off Somalia.
