The body of a Somali pirate who drowned just after receiving a huge ransom washed up on the beach with $153,000 (€114,712) in cash.
Five pirates drowned on Friday when their small boat capsized after they received a reported $3m (€2.25m) ransom for releasing a Saudi oil tanker.
Somali resident Omar Abdi Hassan said one of the bodies had been found on a beach near the coastal town of Haradhere and relatives were searching for the other four.
“One of them was discovered and they are still looking for the other ones. He had $153,000 (€114,712) in a plastic bag in his pocket,” he said.
Graeme Gibbon Brooks, managing director of the British company Dryad Maritime Intelligence Service, said the incident was unlikely to deter attacks.
“The loss or potential loss of the ransom means the pirates will be all the more keen to get the next ransom in,” he said. “There are people lining up to be pirates.”
