The Guardian published on 24 October 2016 an article titled "'We Had To Eat Rats,' Say Sailors Held by Somali Pirates for Four Years" by Saeed Kamali Dehghan.
Somali pirates captured the Omani-flagged Naham 3 fishing vessel south of the Seychelles in 2012. After four years in captivity, agreement on a ransom was reached and the crew freed last week. They were the last hostages held by Somali pirates. There has been no successful seizure of ships by Somali pirates since 2014.
