Families of the Indian sailors who have been held hostage by Somali pirates for the past nine months are camping outside the office of the Shipping Ministry in New Delhi imploring the government to secure their release. The pirates, who hijacked the United Arab Emirates (UAE)-owned MT Royal Grace in March, have set November 30 as the deadline for their demands to be met, failing which they have threatened to kill the 17 Indian sailors on board the ship. The relatives of the sailors said that the government has only 'empty' assurances to offer. Meanwhile, Shipping Minister G. K. Vasan said that efforts were continuing to secure the sailors' release.
