Somalia pirates hostages flee after four years of captivity

Almost four years ago, a ship inhabited by sailors was captured by pirates in Somalia and on Saturday those sailors were finally released and after four years of captivity this is being known as the longest-running Somali piracy case to have been brought to an end. To be exact, these 11 crew members were held hostages for 3 years and seven months during which they faced torture at the hands of their pirate captors.

The sailors were not released willingly in fact they had to find their way out themselves. They fled with the help of a few pirate captors during the wee hours of Friday after which they took shelter in a nearby village where they were taken in by government-affiliated milita, a senior Somali anti-piracy official told The Telegraph. Omar Sheikh Ali Osoble who is the counter-piracy focal point for the Galmudug regional administration said that “Few of them had shoes, some had only their underclothes, but they managed to escape through a window and reach a place of safety.”

He further described that “We collected them and put them in a nice hotel last night. They had air-conditioning and hot water, and all of them were so happy this morning. They were not in a bad condition, but they told us stories of their experiences which were terrible. Some of them were beaten very badly. Sometimes they were forced to call their people at home to say they needed money to be released, and they were close to dying, and they were beaten while they were on the telephone. All of them are so happy to be free.”
