The couple, Paul and Rachel Chandler, aged 60, and 58 fell into the hands of Somalia’s notorious buccaneers on October 22, last year, as they were sailing on their 38-ft yatch en route to Tanzania.

Adado,(Sunatimes.com) Thousands of people have on Saturday held the largest ever demonstration in the central Somali town of Adado to demand for the release of British couple held by Somali pirates since last year.

The demonstrators said that it was time to release the old couple who were snatched by Somali pirates in October last year, while they were sailing in the high seas of Indian Ocean.

"Release the innocent olds; you have no right to hold them in captivity, every human being likes to live in freedom as you holders also need" were chanting the demonstrators who marched all streets in the city.

The couple, Paul and Rachel Chandler, aged 60, and 58 fell into the hands of Somalia’s notorious buccaneers on October 22, last year, as they were sailing on their 38-ft yatch en route to Tanzania.

Since the abduction of the couple, there have been many demonstrations in the lawless country to demand for their release, while dozens of Somali politicians and elders also called on the buccaneers to unconditionally free them, but the pirates turned a deaf ear to all calls.

Pirates are at large in Somalia which lacked a functioning central government for the past two decades during which more than half a million people mainly civilians were killed in the war-devastated horn of African nation.
