Piracy - December 19

London, Dec 19 -- A press report, dated Dec 18, states: Somali pirates have released bulk carrier Delvina and its 21 crew members, including 14 Filipinos, after more than a month in captivity, the Philippine government and the vessel's owner said today. The Philippine embassy in Nairobi reported that the vessel was heading to Mombasa with its crew, who were safe and in good health. Foreign Affairs spokesman Ed Malaya said the vessel, seized on Nov 5, was released at around 1800, UTC, yesterday. "All the crew are reported unharmed and are well despite their 43-day ordeal," the vessel's owner, Meadway Shipping & Trading Inc, said in a statement in Athens. (See issue of Dec 21.)
