Hostages let go

PIRATES in Somalia said yesterday that they had freed the seven crew members from Seychelles yacht Indian Ocean Explorer. Pirates seized the oceanographic research cruiser at the end of March near the Seychelles' island of Assumption. "We have released the Seychelles crew, they flew this morning," pirate Hassan told Reuters by phone from Haradheere.The International Maritime Bureau says more ships have been attacked off Somalia so far in 2009 than in the whole of 2008, but fewer of those attacks have been successful.
