Somali police not guilty of piracy, EU says

The EU’s anti-piracy military mission in the Indian Ocean, Atalanta, has exonerated Somalia’s police force after reports police had hijacked a Panama-flagged cargo ship last Thursday. “There had been certain incidents on board the vessel” but these “cannot be classified as a maritime security incident,” Atalanta said. Somali police boarded the ship because it was adrift due to hull-damage and a Spanish warship was monitoring the situation, the EU said.
