Somali Pirates Free Three Iranian Hostages after 5 Years

Three Iranian hostages, captured by Somali pirates, were released on August 20, a maritime crime adviser reported. Their vessel, FV Siraj, had been hijacked in 2015. These were the only remaining crew members who were under captivity, as some were released already. “This marks the end of an era of Somali piracy and the pain and suffering of Somalia’s forgotten hostages,” said John Steed, a hostage coordinator in Nairobi.
