BANZAI7 NEWS--Somali pirates freed the Greek ship Ariana and its 24 Ukrainian crew on Thursday after a helicopter dropped a multi-million dollar ransom onto its deck and ended a more than six-month hostage ordeal.

The Haradeere piracy index soared on the news.

Note: In Somalia's main pirate lair of Haradheere, the sea gangs have set up a co-operative to fund their hijackings offshore, a sort of stock exchange meets Wall Street criminal syndicate.
