Description: A bulk carrier sailing deep offshore in international waters has been boarded. Report came from CSO of shipping company via MDAT-GoG.

 

UPDATE 1: Local Naval authorities have informed that the Italian Navy vessel Rizzo Luigi Rizzo (P595) is in the vicinity, and preparing a boarding team to support the vessel. Information received
is that all crew reached the citadel before pirates boarded the vessel and are all safe.

 

It is assessed that due to distance offshore, it is possible that pirates deployed from a mother vessel, and therefore the risk remains high deep offshore in the Gulf of Guinea and all vessels in
the area should maintain extreme vigilance.
