South Korean Sailors Freed

A group of Somali pirates released four South Korean sailors Saturday morning after holding them for nearly 19 months. Their freedom came after negotiations between the pirates and the company that owned the ship from which the sailors were taken. The release comes after the reported payment of a ransom. Although the pirates held the entire crew when they captured the oil tanker last April, the 21 non-Koreans were released within seven months.
