Negotiating Concerns

Sources close to the elders of the gang holding the Danish hostages from the sailing yacht “SY ING” have reported that the present negotiations between a Danish delegation in Bosasso and the hostage takers are “bound to fail”.

According to three separate sources, and reported by Ecoterra, the fact that the Danish delegation operates from Bosaaso in close co-operation with the Puntland government is a major issue.

The armed forces of the Puntland administration have already once attacked the gang, and this reportedly makes it, “difficult” for the hostage takers to trust the Danish negotiation team.

The Danish team had apparently contact with the hostage takers and according to the Danish Foreign Ministry also spoke to some hostages, but has thus far been unable to secure their release.
