Hijacked Turkish vessel freed
Turkish-owned chemtanker Karagöl, held captive by Somali pirates since last November has been released.

Turkish-owned chemtanker Karagöl, held captive by Somali pirates since last November has been released.

Turkish-owned chemtanker Karagöl, held captive by Somali pirates since last November has been released, according to media reports from the region. The International Maritime Bureau was unable to provide independent confirmation.

However, Agence France Presse quotes a lawyer for Istanbul-based YDC Maritime, operator of the Karagöl, as stating that the ship has been freed with the crew of 14 unharmed. He would not comment on whether or not a ransom had been paid.

The vessel was heading to India ex-Israel and laden with 4,500 tonnes of chemicals at the time of the hijack.

The development makes Karagol the second Turkish ship to be released by Somalian pirates inside a week.

A Turkish-operated cargo vessel hijacked in December is still controlled by the pirates.
