Egyptian Chronicles: In less than 48 hours

In less than 48 hours

The Blue Star ship saga is continuing and I am afraid it is taking to an ugly turn. The news coming from the crew members to their families are scary. The food already has finished from a week ago. There is a crew member who was shot in his leg by the pirates, there is no medical care for him.

It seems that our men in the Egyptian intelligence has lost their tough and could not convince the pirates to lower the ransom. The pirates are insisting on a huge sum of money , it is not sure what the sum is, I found several numbers from  $ 5,000,000 to 1,100,000 to 750,000 !!??

It seems that the owners of the ship “Blue Marine” company are refusing to pay more than $ 100,000 according to the families of the crew members !!

The pirates already announced tomorrow Saturday as a deadline ,if their demands are not met , they will blow the ship !! Yes in less than 48 hours the Blue star ship will be bombed and its crew will be killed if the demands of the Somali pirates are not met

Yesterday Thursday the families of the crew protested in front of the Blue Marine Company in the middle of Alexandria over the news that the company will abandon the ship 

There 28 crew members on the board of the Blue star

I do not know where the hell is the Foreign Ministry ?? where are our army and our navy ?? where are our naval special forces ??

I pray to God that the crew members return back to their families safe and the company gives the pirates the ransom they want even if they have to sell the company itself , we are talking about people , if those 28 crew members are killed their blood will be distributed equally between Blue Marine Co.,Foreign Ministry ,the Egyptian Navy and any party who can help them in this crisis and did not do it.
