Bourbon Sagitta crew members released
Bourbon reports that the ten 10 crew members kidnapped offshore Cameroon on October 31, on board the AHTS Bourbon Sagitta were released today.
They are now safe in Yaoundé.
After medical check-ups, all of them appear to be in good health.
Bourbon thanked the local Cameroonian authorities and the French Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs for their assistance.
The two Cameroonian crew members will be joining up with their families and friends very soon.
The other eight crew members, seven French and one Tunisian, will be returning to France rapidly, where they too will be reunited with their families and friends.
