* We have received reports that Bulk carrier ABDULLAH (IMO:9745598), has been hijacked by armed pirates whilst in a position approximately 600 nautical miles east of Mogadishu, Somalia on 12 March 2024.

* It is reported that as many as 22 armed men may have boarded the vessel which has been re-directed towards the Somali coast.

* It is not currently clear what is the fate of the crew on board the vessel, but reports suggest it is unlikely they made it to the citadel given the course alterations observed since it was hijacked.

* It is possible that General Average and Recovery issues may arise as a result of this incident.

* We therefore recommend that you contact us urgently if you are concerned with any cargo on board this vessel so that we can immediately start taking steps to protect your interests.
