Somali pirates have captured a yatch with four Americans on-board off the coast of east Africa.

The navy is reportedly in pursuit of the hijacked "Quest". The yatch owners are being held with two passengers. The owners have been sailing the world since 2004 distributing bibles.

Piracy is a big problem in the area where the hijacking took place. It's believed pirates hold at least 31 vessels and some 700 hostages.

If the yacht makes it to Ssomalia's shores, the hostages would be taken inland making a fast resolution less likely.
