MARINE Nationale Frigate La Fayette continues to provide outstanding support to Combined Task Force 150 (CTF 150) and Combined Maritime Forces (CMF), by interdicting a suspicious dhow and seizing 260 Kgs of heroin on May 11, 2018. It is her third seizure of narcotics in less than a month. In an operation coordinated by CTF 150 headquarters, MNF La Fayette was conducting maritime security operations and working closely with a French Navy Falcon patrol aircraft. Together they located a suspicious vessel that La Fayette interdicted with assistance from her own Panther helicopter. Ship’s Commanding Officer determined that further action was required and quickly requested permission from Commander CTF 150 to activate a boarding team. A thorough search that lasted nearly 24 hours in rough sea conditions resulted in seizure of 260 Kgs of heroin worth an estimated U.S. $61 million dollars. PHOTOS - COMBINED MARITIME FORCES

Joint Patrol between ITS Margottini boarding team and AMISOM | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- Crew members from ITS Margottini continued the regional cooperation EU NAVFOR has established with the AMISOM Marine unit off the coast of Mogadishu. Following on from several interactions last year, Margottini’s Italian crew took up the opportunity to patrol local waters off the coast of Mogadishu with the AMISOM unit. Not only did the two Marine units conduct coordinated boat drills, they also exchanged training and ideas on boat safety, maintenance and sea survival. Maritime training with regional partners, such as AMISOM, is an extremely important aspect of Operation Atalanta’s work to deter piracy off the coast of Somalia. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR
