Somali pirates have reportedly released the Ukrainian cargo ship Faina, which had been held for more than four months off the coast of Somalia, according to a U.S. Navy press release. The Navy had maintained a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week presence near the ship since September and delivered food, water and fuel to a ship after it was released, according to a report by Bloomberg.
