MOGADISHU, Somalia — The Somali pirates who hijacked a Saudi supertanker carrying $100 million in crude oil demanded a ransom from the ship's owners, a man believed to be one of the masterminds behind the attack said on al-Jazeera television Wednesday.
"Negotiators are located on board the ship and on land. Once they have agreed on the ransom, it will be taken in cash to the oil tanker," said the man identified as Farah Abd Jameh, who did not indicate the amount to be paid.more..http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,454485,00.html
