(U) Vessels Boarded: No incidents to report.

 

(U) Vessels Fired Upon/Attempted Boardings:

 

1. (U) SOMALIA: On 22 October, suspected Somali pirates attacked the chemical tanker, CPO KOREA, 330 nautical miles off the east coast of Somalia. The attack was confirmed after a thorough investigation into the incident. The Operation Commander of the EU Naval Force (Somalia),

 

Major General Rob Magowan CBE, has reiterated the need for continued vigilance at sea. During the attack a number of shots were exchanged between six armed men in a fast-moving skiff and the armed security team on board CPO KOREA. The suspected pirates eventually broke away after CPO KOREA’s crew successfully implemented self-protection measures by increasing speed, altering course and rigging fire hoses to thwart the attack.

 

This is the first reported attack on a merchant vessel off the coast of Somalia in two and a half years. It comes after 26 hostages from fishing vessel, NAHAM 3, were released on 22 October after being held by Somali pirates for four and a half years. (EUNAVFOR)
