Pompei Released by Pirates

Good news from Somalia: the Belgian ship the Pompei has been released along with its 10 crewmembers after more than 2 months of captivity. Via CNN:
(CNN) -- A Belgian ship and its crew captured by Somali pirates two months ago have been released, the Belgium government said Sunday.

The Pompei was hijacked north of the Seychelles on April 18. The crew of 10 was made up of two Belgians, one Dutch, four Croatians and three Filipinos.

No other information was available.

Thank God for this safe conclusion. Please continue praying for the other ships and crews held by pirates in this dangerous region, and for the safety of all the ships that must pass through these waters.
