Vessel southeast of Yemen’s Nishtun abandoned by captain and crew after heavy flooding

United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) says that the captain and crew of a vessel 96 nautical miles southeast of Yemen’s Nishtun were forced to abandon ship after it suffered flooding that could not be contained.

The crew has been recovered by an assisting ship while the abandoned ship remains adrift, it adds.

UKMTO earlier reported that it had received a report of a distress call from the vessel and that it was investigating the incident.
