    AIROBI, April 11 (Reuters) - Pirates captured a U.S.-owned and Italian-flagged tugboat with 16 crew including 10 Italians on Saturday in the latest hijacking in the busy Gulf of Aden.
    "We can confirm that 10 Italians were kidnapped but we have no further details," an Italian foreign ministry official said.
