Emotional return for 'forgotten' pirate hostages

A group of hostages held by Somali pirates for nearly five years has arrived in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

The 26 men were received by diplomats from their respective embassies, and will now return home to China, the Philippines, Vietnam and other countries in East Asia.

Their release was secured on Saturday after long negotiations. The BBC's Tomi Oladipo was at the airport for their arrival.
