Four South Korean sailors who were abducted by Somali pirates nineteen months ago have been released. On April 30, 2011, a tanker operated by Singapore-based company was hijacked by the pirates while heading to Malaysia from Kenya. Twenty-five people were on board. The pirates freed the vessel seven months later along with the non-Korean sailors, but kept the four Koreans captive.
