The South Korean skipper of a fishing boat that was kidnapped in waters off Ghana in May has reportedly been released. 

A diplomatic source reported the release on Wednesday, local time. Whether the four other sailors on the boat – three from China and one from Russia – were also released was not confirmed. 

The condition of the South Korean captain also remains unknown. 

The five crew members of the Atlantic Princess, a tuna boat, were kidnapped by armed pirates on May 19 in waters off Tema, Ghana. 

Meanwhile, four South Korean crew members of another fishing boat, which was taken hostage by pirates off the shores of Benin in west Africa on May 31, have yet to be released.
