Somali pirates free German ship after ransom paid

BOSASSO, Somalia - Somali pirates have freed a German-owned cargo ship, seized in April, after they received a ransom, a pirate and maritime source said on Friday.
The Antigua and Barbuda-flagged Susan K, and with its crew of 10 Ukrainians and Filipinos, was released on Thursday.
"The German cargo ship has now sailed away. We have taken $5.7 million in ransom," pirate Ibrahim told Reuters by phone from coastal Ras Guna, in semi-autonomous state of Puntland.
