On September 29 the EU NAVFOR warship FGS KÖLN located and destroyed a suspicious whaler close to a beach off Somalia, 100 nautical miles SW of Mogadishu.


A helicopter was dispatched to inspect and found the whaler loaded with equipment usually related to piracy on board.


No crew was seen on board. Consequently, the whaler was destroyed to prevent any potential future use for piracy.


This action continues EU NAVFOR’s robust stance against piracy and the intention to interdict and disrupt pirate activity.
