Somali pirates free Filipino crew

Somali pirates release a Japanese tanker and 19 crew members.

    The vessel was hijacked on August 21 in the Gulf of Aden where five other foreign vessels have been seized since July. More than 50 Filipino sailors remain in the hands of Somali pirates.

    The Philippines, one of the largest suppliers of crew members in the international shipping industry, has been hit hard by an escalation in the number of attacks by Somali pirates in the Gulf of Aden.
