Cargo vessel pays ransom

The release of a UAE-registered cargo vessel by Somali pirates on Sunday most probably came after a ransom was paid, reported Gulf News. Andrew Mwangura, the head of the East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme, said the ship, MV Al Marjan, was heading back to Dubai after being hijacked 10 nautical miles offshore on October 21. He said the release of the vessel by pirates most probably came after a ransom was paid because 'pirates do not free a siezed ship for nothing.'
