SOMALIA: THE PIRATES RETURN
April 13, 2017
There have been two pirate attacks off the coast of Somalia in the past few weeks, the first hijacks off the Somali coast since 2012. The most recent was a small Indian cargo ship carrying a cargo of wheat and sugar and was believed to have been travelling between Dubai and Bosasso, in Puntland, when it was seized. Members are advised to exercise caution if transiting the area and to refer to the Piracy Focus page of the Britannia website.
