Faina crew make unsuccessful breakout bid

Seafarer on board Ukrainian-controlled ro-ro Faina- captured with its cargo of Soviet-era tanks by Somali pirates in late September - have reportedly attempted an unsuccessful breakout bid.

The unit was last week said to be close to release, but its captors have held on to the ship, saying that the agreed ransom has not been forthcoming.

?Some crew members on the Ukrainian ship are misbehaving,? a spokesman for the pirates told.

?They tried to harm two of our gunmen late Monday. This is unacceptable, they risk serious punitive measures. Somalis know how to live and how to die at the same time, but the Ukrainians" attempt to take violent action is misguided.

?Maybe some of the crew are frustrated and we are feeling the same but our boys never opted for violence, this was a provocation.?

Neither the International Maritime Bureau nor NATO were able to provide independent confirmation of the story.
