  • [01] Hijacked Greek ship released

    ANA-MPA/A Greek-owned cargo ship seized by Somali pirates in the Somali Basin early Saturday has been released, a spokesman for owners TDM Carriers Ltd said on Monday.

    The Panama-flagged "MV Lugela", carrying a load of steel bars and wires and a 12-member crew of Ukrainians, sent a distress call to company headquarters on Saturday as Somali pirates attacked the 4,281 dwt freighter after transiting through the Gulf of Aden headed for Mauritius, and a short while later the ship altered its course towards Somalia.

    The vessel was in the Somali basin, approximately 900 miles east of the Somali pirate den of Eyl, Somalia, at the time of the incident

    A spokesman for the owners said that the ship's captain contacted the company late Sunday night and said that the pirates have abandoned the vessel, and the crew were all well in health.

    The MV Lugela has resumed its journey to its original destination, Mauritius, the spokesman added.

    The EU's naval force in Somalia (EUNAVFOR) said that it is monitoring the situation.
