Somali pirates free Greek bulk carrier.

GREEK-owned bulk carrier Navios Apollon, held by Somalia pirates for two months, was released on Saturday afternoon following the airdrop of an unspecified ransom. The Greek national master and another 18 Filipino seafarers on board are all said to be safe.

The 2000-built, 52,068 dwt vessel was seized off the Seychelles on December 28, and had been heading to Thailand, laden with fertiliser. A statement from EU Navfor has confirmed that it is now sailing to Salalah in Oman, and that no request has been received for warships to monitor the situation.

According to the Lloyd's Marine Intelligence Unit database, the ship is associated with Piraeus-based Navios Maritime Partners.
