MV Panama Freed

Somali pirates have freed the Liberian-flagged container ship “MV Panama” seized last December after receiving a $7 million ransom on Tuesday.

The vessel was hijacked en route from Tanzania to Mozambique with a crew of 23 from Myanmar. “We received the agreed ransom of $7 million early in the morning after long negotiations. Now we have abandoned the ship and it is sailing away safely,” a pirate said.
