Pirates demand $6 million for Schulte ship

Deutsche Welle reports that Somali pirates who seized the German-owned gas tanker Longchamps in the Gulf of Aden are demanding $6 million for the vessel's release. The pirates on board the 3,500-ton tanker contacted the Hamburg-based Bernhard Schulte ship management company on Saturday, two days after hijacking the vessel. The tanker, with its 13-member crew, was en route from Europe to the Far East, transporting liquefied petroleum gas.
