Danish family held by Somali pirates is released

Denmark's Foreign Ministry says seven Danish hostages, including a family of five and two crew members, have been released by Somali pirates after more than six months in captivity.
The Danes were captured in the Indian Ocean on Feb. 24 while sailing around the world in a yacht.
The Foreign Ministry said Wednesday the family, including three children ages 12-16, and the two crew members were safe, doing well under the circumstances, and on their way back to Denmark.
