Somali Pirates: Iranian ("Bolivian") Ship Released

Somali pirates release ship after just a week:
Hmm? The enemy of my enemy is ...
Somali pirates have released an Iranian bulk carrier after a week, a British naval official based in Dubai said yesterday.

The MV Eglantine, a Bolivian-flagged ship with 23 crew members was seized on March 26 off the south-western coast of India.
Capture reported here.

UPDATE: Okay - connected. It appears "released" is not quite the right word.

UPDATE2: Well, there is another version that reports a ransom was paid.
