“There is absolutely no way to free sailors without paying ransom”

A British frigate following the hijacked ship is just shadowing the vessel and there is nothing it can do, John Burnett from Maritime and Underwater Security Consultants told RT.

The Thai-flagged fishing trawler “Thai Unit 3” was hijacked by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean on October 29. The vessel is reportedly crewed by 23 Russians, two Filipinos and a Ghanaian.
