Somali piracy incident in the Gulf of Aden

Overview

The BBC has reported details of a piracy attack in the Gulf of Aden.

BIMCO recommends to all members that ships in this area are to register with MSCHOA and report to UKMTO, in accordance with BMP procedures. Ship protection measures should be in place and avoid complacency at this heightened state of alert.
