Al-Shabaab earns US$10 million by smuggling Somalia charcoal | Coastweek

The inaugural conference on combatting the illicit smuggling of Somalia charcoal has been held at the Combined Maritime Forces headquarters in Bahrain. With the majority of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries being present, the aim of the conference was to identify potential methods to disrupt the illicit trade in charcoal emanating from Somalia. It is estimated that terrorist organisations such as al-Shabaab earn in the region of US$10 million per year by smuggling charcoal from Somalia, which is often marketed as legitimate charcoal to buyers in GCC countries. The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) placed a total ban on the export of charcoal from Somalia in 2012. In 2014, the UNSC gave authorisation for Member States to inspect vessels suspected to be carrying charcoal from Somalia in violation of the ban, to seize and dispose of the illicit cargo and to divert the vessels to a port for such disposal.

EU NAVFOR mark decade counter-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA - EU NAVFOR has been conducting counter-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia since 2008. Advanced cooperation between EU NAVFOR units and other maritime security organisations and departments, keeps the international maritime trade flowing through these important sea-lanes. An important factor in maritime operations is the use of helicopter assets, these provide extensive capabilities to ships at sea. Onboard ESPS Meteoro, the multi-purpose Seahawk SH60B helicopter can conduct up to six hours of flight operations daily and regularly conducts night flying operations. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR

EU NAVFOR Montenegro unit ensure safety of Somalia food Aid

PMAESA and KPA staff members | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- Guarding World Food Programme (WFP) and vulnerable vessels in the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden is one of Operation Atalanta’s key tasks. The WFP ship Petra II has an embarked EU NAVFOR Autonomous Vessel Protection Detachment (AVPD) on board to ensure her valuable cargo of food-aid is protected en route to Somalia. EU NAVFOR is made up of over 20 countries, which routinely provide AVPD’s for potentially exposed ships. A team of troops from the Montenegrin military currently guards Petra II; their presence helps the vital humanitarian aid get to the people of Somalia affected by drought and famine safely. Having the Montenegrin military fully integrated into Operation Atalanta, provides the protection that these ships need against the threat of piracy and strengthen maritime security in the region.
