Tanker Elhiblu 1 - Hijacked by Migrants in the Mediterranean, released by Maltese SF #MarSec


On 27 March 2019, the ship was hijacked by over 100 migrants who the ship had rescued from the Mediterranean.

The hijacking came after a group of men forced Elhiblu 1's captain and crew to divert course from Tripoli (where the ship was sailing to deliver the recently shipwrecked migrants) to Malta.

As the ship was approaching Maltese waters, the captain was able to inform the Maltese government he was not in control of his vessel, and that "through coercive action" a group of men had hijacked the ship.

Elhiblu 1 was later intercepted by the Maltese Navy, which regained control of the ship and detained 5 of the alleged hijackers before escorting Elhiblu 1 to Valletta, Malta.
