Eleven Sri Lankan crew members onboard the hijacked Saudi Arabian flagged oil tanker- MV Al Nisr Al Saudi, returned to the island early this morning.

Thirteen Sri Lankans were onboard the MV Al Nisr Al Saudi released by Somali Pirates on December 7th. “However the 2nd Officer and the cook remained onboard to continue sailing to Jeddah,” External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Bandula Jayasekera said quoting information from the Sri Lankan Ambassador in Oman D.M. Ranarajah.

The vessel, with a crew of 14 and a Greek captain, was heading to Jeddah from Japan when she was pirated in the Gulf of Aden on March 3, 2010. (D.S)

    Thank you Jesus for sending these people home before Christmas. Now many will try to take credit for this. But God knows how much these people suffered and how much their families suffered and the little or nothing doe by the authorities to get them released. Lets welcome all of them home.
