Somali hijackers who have been holding a ship for two years killed a hostage and wounded another to protest against delayed ransom payment, a pirate boss said.

Hassan Abdi, a commander in the pirate haven of Harardheere, said on Friday that the killing on Wednesday was a message to the owners of the MV Orna, which is owned by a UAE company.

The bulk cargo vessel was hijacked 400 nautical miles north-east of the Seychelles archipelago in December 2010. Four pirates boarded the boat after firing small arms and rocket-propelled grenades.
