On Saturday 19 September a exausted man was saved by the Swedish units after swimming nearly 3 km in an attempt to board the sealift vessel that will bring the EU NAVFOR Swedish warships back home.
On Friday 18 September the EU NAVFOR Swedish warships MALMOE, STOCKHOLM and TROSSOE sailed to sealift vessel EIDE anchored outside Djibouti port.
On Saturday night one of the soldiers standing anchor-watch detected a person that climbed the anchor cable and one trying to do the same behind him. The second man fell back in to the sea and HMS MALMOE threw a floating device over board. The crew of MALMOE pulled him onboard.
The men were returned to the authorities in Djibouti.
