Victims of pirate attack still not repatriated

MORE than 20 Cambodian and Thai fishermen who were attacked by Somali pirates and rescued while adrift in the Gulf of Aden have not yet been returned to their countries of origin. Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said yesterday that Cambodian embassy officials in Bangkok have not been informed about any repatriation of the fishermen since a Thai boat owner picked them up from Oman on November 15. The 23 victims – 15 Cambodians, seven Thais and one Yemeni policeman – were attacked about 70 nautical miles off the coast of Somalia earlier this month.
