9 arrested for piracy off Mogadishu Coast


Nine people arrested for piracy near off Mogadishu Coast.

Romanian warship Regele Ferdinand, under the command of the European Union Naval Force (EUNAVFOR) in cooperation with Turkish warship, Gemlik of Combined Task Force 151, arrested the suspected pirates after hours of chasing.

This operation is against the pirate activity on sea.

It is obvious that pirates did not canceled their intention to attack ships even risking to be arrested.

A boarding team has been sent to search onboard the suspected ship who was trying to evade the counter-piracy forces for an hour but without success.

The suspects were transported onboard the Romanian frigate.

The suspected pirate vessel was located by a Swedish EUNAVFOR Maritime Aircraft Patrol.
