TEHRAN (Press TV) -- Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi on Wednesday condemned Somalia for opening fire on an Iranian fishing boat and killing the captain of the vessel and injuring another sailor.
"Iran has conveyed its protest to Somalia in this regard through relevant channels,” Qasemi told ISNA. He said Iran’s Foreign Ministry is seriously following the issue.  Last week, Somali regional officials said the Iranian captain of a fishing boat was killed and another sailor was injured after security forces opened fire on the vessel during an operation in the Indian Ocean, according to reports.
