Hobyo( Sunatimes) 14 Iranian hostages arrived  in Galkao city central Somalia safely , a day after they survived from an airstrike by suspected Nato naval  jets on Hobyo sea port of Galmudug State., one of the Iranian told Sunatimes on Friday

No sooner we had jumped off the boat, and then Nato naval forces struck it with bombs and destroyed it. We narrowly escaped for our lives. The most horrific scene I remember is that we could see some of the Somali pirates, who were holding us; die before our eyes as we swam towards the shore, “said one of the survived Iranian hostages

 “In the after math of the Nato attack, we traced the Iran hostages down and finally found them out.  We took them to  Galkao for their safety because of their safety.  I am not sure that Nato Naval forces have killed all the Somali Pirates in Hobyo coastal area, but all I can confirm is that innocent local fishermen were hit during the attack, “ said Hobyo Police Commander Mr Abdiwali Farabadan.

Mohamed Ali, the Galmudug Minister of Fisheries and Resources have vehemently charged foreign Naval forces, patrolling the in the Indian Ocean of raiding the attack on local fishermen under the false pretext of targeting pirates

The Iranian hostages were first kidnapped in Gara’ad erea but later moved to Hobyo town and Galmudug administration condemns that posted the pictures of the Iranian hostages
