EU NAVFOR successfully prevents pirate attackAugust 14, 2009 - 10:34
The European Union Naval Force frigate BREMEN, together with a Greek Navy ship, NAVARINON, under NATO command successfully prevented a pirate attack on a Turkish merchant ship early morning of the 14 August.
The incident occurred in the International Recommended Transit Corridor (IRTC) in the Gulf of Aden. Six pirates in a skiff were reported to approach the Turkish cargo ship MV ELGIZNUR CEBI.
The pirates were forced to break off their attack by a helicopter from the EU NAVFOR frigate BREMEN after warning shots were fired.
Boarding was subsequently conducted by the boarding team of the Greek frigate NAVARINON, once it had arrived at the scene of the incident.
