Iranian Hostages Escape from Pirate Gangs

Iranian Hostages Escape from Pirate Gangs

On August 27, 2015, the Jaber, an Iranian fishing dhow, and its crew members, managed to slip its mooring and escape from the hands of Somali pirates. The Jaber was briefly pursued by the pirates before it was able to rendezvous with international naval forces operating under the EUNAVFOR mission.

For more information about the rest of the hostages still being held, please visit OBP's East Africa Pirate Hostage Ticker.
