Pirates Hijack Turkish Bulk Carrier

Friday, April 09, 2010

The Turkish flagged Bulk Carrier Yasin C was hijacked on April 7 approximately 250 Nautical Miles east of Mombasa. The Yasin C, with deadweight of 36 318 tonnes, left the IRTC almost one week ago and was heading to Mombasa. The Turkish owned and operated Yasin C has a crew of 25 and all are believed to be Turkish. It is understood that first reports of the attack on the ship came from the NATO Turkish warship Gelibolu that received distress calls from the Yasin C. EU NAVFOR, who works closely with NATO and CMF, continues to monitor the situation.
