Somali pirates told hostages on UAE-managed tanker to say final goodbyes

The woman whose sailor husband was taken hostage by Somali pirates said he and the rest of his crew were forced to call home to speak to their families "for the last time".

The hostages, who were on board a UAE-managed tanker, were given less than a minute to say "final goodbyes" to relatives in Sri Lanka last week during an exchange of fire with Puntland counter piracy forces off Somalia’s north-eastern coast.
