Panama-Flagged Freighter Disappears

Tuesday, July 17, 2007
Independent Online reported that a Panama-flagged cargo vessel has gone missing in Somalia's pirate-infested waters, a Kenyan maritime official said. The MV Infinity Marine 1 disappeared some 37 nautical miles off the northeastern village of Ras Hafun in late June, said Andrew Mwangura of the Kenyan branch of the Seafarers' Assistance Program. The vessel, sailing from the United Arab Emirates, was carrying general cargo including food stuffs, iron sheet, generators, batteries, white wood and light vehicles. Four vessels - one from Taiwan, another from Denmark and two from South Korea - are already currently in the hands of pirates off the coast of war-torn Somalia. Source: Independent Online
