Grevenmacher: Marie-Astrid boat captured by Somali Pirates

Military personnel were alerted in the early hours of this morning, after Somali Pirates captured the Marie-Astrid boat while cruising along the Moselle river.

The local police chief said that negotiations are on going, with no clear reason why they strayed so far from Africa.

However some progress seems to be being made after a ransom payment offer of a few crates of Bofferding have been made. 

“The Bofferding offer went down well.” Said the Police spokesman. “We think it might just work.”
