  • [01] Greek-owned vessel released by Somali pirates

    (ANA-MPA) -- A Greek-owned ship was released by Somali pirates, according to an announcement by a EU naval force patrolling off the Horn of Africa. The freighter "MV Eleni" was hijacked by 12 armed pirates in the Gulf of Aden on May 12, 2010.

    The 23-man crew included two Greek nationals -- the skipper and first engineer -- along with 19 Filipinos nationals, a Ukrainian and a Romanian.

    According to the maritime affairs ministry, the vessel is headed to a port in Oman. It was carrying a cargo of metals from the Ukraine to China when hijacked.

    No information was given on whether a ransom was paid.
