Event: Pirate Attack

 

Somalia  

A report has been issued by UKMTO that a vessel has come under attack from between four to ten skiffs off the Somali coast. A military vessel has been informed and is making its way to give assistance. A further report has been received confirming that the vessel and crew are all safe.

 

Vessels within a 100 nautical mile radius should increase their anti-piracy deterrents in line with Best Management Practices 4. This should include increased twenty four hour anti-piracy watch keeping and radar monitoring. Vessel hardening should be checked and where appropriate bolstered.
