Captives Seized on World Food Program Ship Remain in Pirate Hands

Still hostages to Somali pirates, the Kenyan crew of the WFP ship as reported here:
He said requests by World Food Program (WFP) to the group to release the captives had fallen on deaf ears.

WFP, he said, has suspended the supply of food consignments to those areas till the situation is resolved.

The pirates, he said, wanted food because last December's tsunami had destroyed most of their crops.
