New Delhi: After nearly 32 months, Somali pirates on Sunday released MV Iceberg along with six Indian sailors who were on board.
This comes 11 months after 17 Indian sailors were freed on January 10, 2012 by Somali pirates. The number of hijackings has significantly reduced in the last few months.
Taken captive in March 2010, the cargo ship MV Iceberg-I's owner had stopped negotiations with the pirates. He had also not paid a single penny to the families of the sailors.
