EU NAVFOR ITS LIBECCIO develops contact with the local fishing communityOctober 29, 2010 - 17:09
On 29 October, the EU NAVFOR Italian ship ITS LIBECCIO visited two Yemeni fishing dhows, while patrolling along the Somali coast.
These kind of friendly visits on board non suspected vessels are crucial to collect information about piracy and help create an understanding of EU NAVFOR in the area.
The warship’s rhib approached the vessels and the EU NAVFOR sailors exchanged some information with the fishermen regarding suspicious activities at sea. The boarding team also made sure that the seafarers understood the reason for EU NAVFOR’s presence in the area.
