Samho Jewelry: no country would take detainees

- South Korea is considering forging agreements with some neighboring countries of Somalia to seek their help in handling captured pirates, an official said Wednesday.

The move came after Seoul was unable to find a country willing to accept the five pirates captured in last month's commando operation to free the South Korean freighter Samho Jewelry and its 21-member crew.

The pirates were then brought to South Korea for investigation and trial.
