OFF SOMALIA -- Protecting vessels carrying food to Somali communities is part of Operational Atlanta’s core tasks and earlier this week the Italian frigate, ITS Federico Martinengo did just that. MV Petra I was transiting Somali territorial waters when she met with EU NAVFOR’s forces. Almost 1.8 million tonnes of food aid have reached the Somali people through the direct protection from European Union Naval Forces over the last 10 years. This is due to continue for at least another two years after the Operation Atalanta mandate was extended to December 2020. PHOTO - EU NAVFOR
