EU Naval Force (EU NAVFOR) has confirmed that an Indian-flagged cargo dhow was seized by suspected pirates on April 1 and is now in the vicinity of Hobyo, Somalia.

“An EU Naval Force maritime patrol aircraft has confirmed the exact location of the dhow and has attempted to establish radio communications but without success,” EU NAVFOR said.

EU NAVFOR added that investigations and operations are ongoing.

Somali pirates hijacked the dhow en route from Dubai to either Bosasso, Somalia or Al Mukalla, Yemen, in the vicinity of Socotra, Dryad Maritime told World Maritime News yesterday referring to the data from United Kingdom Marine Trade Operations (UKMTO).

Up to 11 crewmembers may be onboard the ship named MV Al Kausar/MV Al Kaushar.
