Korea navy deploying with counter-piracy operation off Somalia

Kenya operate China-aided cargo scanners at Mombasa port | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- The Republic of Korea warship, ROKS Dae Jo Young, has recently been deployed with EU NAVFOR Operation Atalanta off the coast of Somalia. The invaluable co-operation between Republic of Korea and European Union warships is helping to strengthen maritime security to keep seafarers safe as they transit the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden. ROKS Dae Jo Young is a Sun-sin class destroyer and was launched in November 2003. Equipped with the latest military and surveillance technology, she is perfectly suited to counter-piracy operations. During the last week ROKS Dae Jo Young and EU NAVFOR warships cooperated at sea to integrate communications systems and carry out combined operations at sea. This is the third time that Republic of Korea and the European Union Naval Force ships have worked together this year. PHOTO - EU NAVFOR

Combined Maritime Forces -- al Shabaab 'checkpoint taxation' between charcoal production sites and stockpiles at ports along the Horn of Africa currently generate at least $10 million dollars per annum of income for the Somalia militants.
