The parachute with the $3 million, thrown from a Aircraft, landing on the vessel for the Somali Pirates. A new masterpiece
A maritime bureau confirmed the release.
The pirates, who call themselves the Central Regional Coastguard (CRC), said the owner of the ship, the oil giant Saudi Aramco, had paid a ransom of $3m. The pirates asked for $25m.
The Saudi supertanker seized by Somali pirates in the world's biggest ever hijacking has been freed following a reported ransom payment of $3m. Last night the US navy released a photo showing a small package apparently containing the ransom parachuting to the deck of the Sirius Star from a small aircraft.
