Pirates release S. Korean supertanker for $9.5 million ransom

Published: 11.06.10, 18:49 / Israel News

Somali pirates said Saturday they had received a record ransom of $9.5 million for the release of Samho Dream, a South Korean oil supertanker they hijacked in the Indian Ocean in early April this year.

 

Andrew Mwangura, coordinator of the East African Seafarers Assistance Programme, confirmed the supertanker was free, and that a Singapore-registered ship with 19 Chinese sailors onboard hijacked in June in the Gulf of Aden had also been released. (Reuters)
