The Indian Navy said Monday that it had arrested 61 pirates and rescued 13 crew members over the weekend some 700 miles off the western coast. The Navy said it had seized the Vega 5, a fishing boat from Mozambique that Somali pirates had captured in December and were using as a mother ship to attack other ships in the Arabian Sea. The Navy increased its patrols in December after a series of pirate attacks near the Indian coast. The raid was the third major capture of Somali pirates by Indian authorities this year. India captured 43 pirates in two raids in January and February.
