Somali Pirates Release Hi-Jacked Chemical Tank After a Year

Captured in March 2012 off the coast of Oman, the Panama flagged-MT Royal Grace was held captive by Somali pirates for a year. When pirates received an undisclosed ransom, an EU piracy task force, EU Navor, was alerted in March that the vessel which contained 20 crew-members was finally pirate free.
