- United Arab Emirates: Sunday, January 13 - 2013 at 03:07
Three Syrian hostages held by Somali pirates since 2010 have been set free without payment of any ransom, Reuters has reported. The three were part of the 19-strong crew of a Panama-flagged, UAE-owned bulk cargo vessel captured in December 2010 some 400 miles northeast of the Seychelles. "No ransom was paid. We had agreed with pirates to surrender, hand over weapons and release the hostages without ransom," said the president of the government of Adado region, Mohamed Aden Tiicey.
