Event: Suspicious Vessel

 

Bab el Mandeb

It has been reported that a vessel was approached by two skiffs. Each of the skiffs had five persons embarked with their faces obscured. They managed to approach to within six hundred metres before turning away due to rough seas.

 

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.
