MNS 'La Fayette' from CTF150 seize over 400 kilograms heroin

MNS 'La Fayette' from CTF150 seize over 400 kilograms heroin | Coastweek

Marine Nationale frigate La Fayette has seize 413 kgs of heroin during a patrol in support of Combined Maritime Forces (CMF). La Fayette’s seizure is the third for the French Navy in support of Combined Task Force 150 (CTF 150). Together with Marine Nationale destroyer Jean de Vienne, the two French ships have confiscated over $370 million USD of drugs over the last two months. Asian-refined heroin derived from Afghan or Burmese poppy seeds flows by dhow sailing vessel and by air into Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. There it is redirected to Europe, and sometimes, via Nigeria, to Mexico and North America. Al-Shabaab, the Islamist, Al-Qaeda-affiliated terror movement of Somalia, derives much of its predatory income from the movement of Asian heroin, charcoal and locally produced qat [miraa].

Masai Mara is now an all year round destination with Safari Link | Coastweek

TRAVEL IN SAFETY AND COMFORT WITH SAFARILINK -- Cessna Caravan is well suited to the "bush" airstrips that make up the majority of the destinations served by the airline and the ability to cope with the very short flight time between many of the airstrips served by the scheduled services. This workhorse of the fleet is a rugged fixed under-carriage aircraft that is ideal for landing on the 'dirt' airstrips common in the game parks. Its high wings and large windows allow exceptional viewing of the unfolding scenery and animals whilst on-route. The aircraft is powered by a Pratt & Whitney PT6-114A turbo-prop engine. The Cessna Caravan is used by governmental organizations and by a large number of companies for police, air ambulance, passenger transport, air charter, freight and parachuting operations..

Six Somalia suspected Pirates detained and face 30 years' in jail

Six suspected pirates detained, arraigned: facing 30 years' in jail | Coastweek

Container vessel MV 'Ever Dynamic', [left] was attacked in the Western Indian Ocean in November 2017. Large oil tanker 'Abqaiq' [right] was attacked in April 2018. Recent attacks by a suspected Pirate Action Group against the 55,000t Container Ship MV 'Ever Dynamic' and on the Fishing Vessel 'Gallerna III' in the same vicinity 300 miles east of Mogadishu demonstrated the existing capabilities for long range pirate activity. Six suspected Somalia pirates were subsequently detained and the skiff/ whalers and equipment seized. The six suspects have been transferred to the Seychelles to be investigated by the Seychellois authorities, where if convicted, face up to 30 years in jail. Most recent targeted approach by suspect Somali pirates to shipping provides evidence of the continued need for Naval Force presence across the both the Gulf of Aden and the Somali Basin. Importantly, as well as the continuing application of BMP by ships in the 'High Risk Area' and time critical co-ordination between Naval Assets, MSCHOA and UKMTO. EU NAVFOR remains a catalyst for closer co-operation, co-ordination and partnership. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR
