Latest ONI World Wide Threat to Shipping (12 October)

Go here and click on the date. Highlight:
4. SOMALIA: An unidentified bulk carrier was pursued 30 Sep at 2320 UTC while underway in position 05:05N, 051:05E about 150 nm off the Somali coast. A fishing boat came within 1.7 nm while ship’s master undertook evasive maneuvers. Boat pursed the bulk carrier for about 2 hours. ONI NOTE: If this represents a true attempted boarding, it sets a new outer boundary for safe steaming which has previously been set as 120 nm off the Somali coast (IMB).
