World ROUND-UP: Pirates Will Talk

SOMALI pirates holding a cargo ship full of battle tanks are trying to negotiate for its release after failing in their demand for pounds 10 million.

The bandits who boarded and seized the Faina two weeks ago originally said they would never lower the ransom.

But their spokesman said today they were now prepared to hold talks about a deal.
