Somali Islamist insurgents have begun searching for the pirates who hijacked a giant Saudi-owned oil tanker last Saturday, reports say.

The pirates are thought to be trying to obtain a multi-million dollar ransom…

Reports said Islamist fighters had descended on Haradheere in an apparent show of force, saying they were looking for the pirates…

“I saw four cars full of Islamists driving in the town from corner to corner. The Islamists say they will attack the pirates for hijacking a Muslim ship.”

Meanwhile, Kenya reported on Friday that Somali pirates had been paid more than $150m (£101m) in ransoms in the past 12 months.
