April 21, 2011

Early morning on 21 April, the Bulk Carrier MV Rosalia D’Amato was pirated approximately 350NM South East of Salalah, Oman, in the Indian Ocean.
The 74,500 tonne Italian flagged and owned vessel was on its way to Bandar Imam Khomeini (Iran) from Paranagua (Brazil) when it was attacked by a single skiff. Coalition warships had communications with the vessel and were told: ‘pirates onboard stay away’. The MV Rosalia D’Amato has a crew of 21 (six Italians, 15 Filipinos). There is no further information about the crew at present.
The MV Rosalia D’Amato was registered with MSC(HOA) and was reporting to UKMTO. EU NAVFOR are continuing to monitor the situation.
