Somali: Germany pirates explosives

Mogadishu, Dec 29: Somali reportedly released that a German-owned chemical tanker pirated explosives. That include 19 Indians, two Bangladeshis and a Ukrainian lonboard. After allegedly receiving a 5.5 million dollars ransom money.

According to the BBC, pirates armed with rocket-propelled grenades seized the Marida Marguerite in May.

Andrew Mwangura, head of the Kenya-based East African Seafarers' Assistance Programme on Tuesday, Dec 29, has said that the Marida Marguerite was 'sailing to safe waters' after the pirates were paid 5.5 million dollars.
