Somalia was known to the ancient Egyptians as the Land of Punt.
They valued its trees which produced the aromatic gum resins frankincense and myrrh.
An official in the semi-autonomous state of Puntland said more than two dozen men boarded the ship off Somalia's northern coast, an area known to be used by weapons smugglers and members of the al-Qaida-linked extremist group al-Shabab.
'As one speedboat careers off in retreat security can be heard calling: 'Second skip coming in.'A second boat races towards the starboard of the ship.
Punt is also mentioned in the Bible, and ancient Romans called it Cape Aromatica.
Somalia is named for the legendary father of the Somali people, Samaal (or Samale).
