Seven Pakistani crew members from the hijacked ship the MV Albedo have been reunited with their families.

They were released on Thursday after being held captive for nearly 21 months by Somali pirates.

The ship was hijacked in November 2010 in the Gulf of Aden and 15 crew members still remain in captivity.
