Somali pirates 'free arms ship'

Somali pirates have released a ship loaded with weapons after the ship's owners paid a ransom believed to be more than three million dollars.

The pirates hijacked the MV Faina in September 2008, as it sailed down the Somali coast towards the Kenyan port of Mombasa.

Peter Greste reports from Nairobi.
