UKMTO reports second Somali hijacking

MAST Note: At the time of writing, UKMTO states that the report is ‘unconfirmed’. The Puntland Maritime Police Force (PMPF) did have a presence in Eyl for some time and we are currently trying to confirm this incident with sources in the region.
The United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) has issued a report advising another ship has been hijacked off Eyl in Somalia’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland, the second attack in under two weeks.
The UKMTO is reporting the ship, as yet not named, is now acting like a mothership on the hunt for further attacks. UKMTO acts as voluntary reporting scheme for the Indian Ocean.
