A chemical tanker hijacked by armed attackers on Sunday as it transited past the coast of northern Yemen was freed after a U.S. Navy warship responded, the authorities said.

The vessel, CENTRAL PARK, had received radio communications from Houthi rebels instructing it to divert to the port of Hodeida.

The vessel ignored the instruction. Shortly afterwards, it was boarded by five armed individuals.

The crew issued a distress call and took refuge in the ship’s citadel.

The guided-missile destroyer USS MASON responded to the distress call and “demanded release of the vessel,” U.S. Central Command said in a statement.

“Subsequently, five armed individuals debarked the ship and attempted to flee via their small boat.”

“The MASON pursued the attackers resulting in their eventual surrender,” the statement added.

The attackers, who have not been identified, were detained by the Navy. A DOD spokesperson said Tuesday that they appear to be Somali pirates.

Hours after the attempted hijacking, two ballistic missiles were fired from areas controlled by Houthi rebels “toward the general location” of the USS MASON and the CENTRAL PARK.

The missiles landed in the Gulf of Aden approximately ten nautical miles from the ships.

Earlier Sunday, the UK Maritime Trade Organization said that it had received a report of two black and white boats approaching another merchant vessel in the Gulf of Aden “in a concerning manner, with one small craft on each quarter.”

The boats were said to be carrying eight people in military clothing. The reported position of this threat was about 40 nm to the southeast of the CENTRAL PARK incident.

On Saturday, a container ship was hit by a suspected Iranian drone in the Indian Ocean, causing minor damage to the vessel but no injuries, a U.S. defense official said.

Last Sunday, the car carrier GALAXY LEADER was hijacked by Houthi rebels and taken to the port of Hodeida.

The CENTRAL PARK and the GALAXY LEADER are both managed by London-based Zodiac Maritime, which is owned by Israeli investors.

The 22 members of the crew of GALAXY LEADER are still being held in Yemen.

One person was rescued and 12 are missing following the sinking on Sunday of a Comoros-flag cargo ship off the Greek island of Lesbos.

The body of another member of the crew was recovered by a good Samaritan vessel assisting in the search.

The ship, RAPTOR, was transporting a load of 6,000 tons of salt from Alexandria, Egypt, to Istanbul.

The crew reported a mechanical failure at 0700 Sunday and sent a distress signal at 0820 saying that the vessel had taken on a list.

Shortly afterwards, it disappeared from coastal monitoring services’ radar around 8 kilometers southwest of Lesbos.

A severe storm warning had been in effect for the Aegean over the weekend with winds in Greece of up to Force 10.

The ship had a history of detentions for serious inspection deficiencies.

During an 18-day detention period in Romania in August 2023, inspectors reported 65 deficiencies including holes in the bulkheads and the hull, corroded hatch covers, a broken emergency generator, missing firefighting gear, an inoperable EPIRB, expired charts, a broken HF radio, and missing certifications for the ships’ officers.

The ship’s Egypt-based owner operates two other general cargo vessels, both of which have also been detained for inspection violations within the last three years.

The failure to maintain a davit caused the March 2021 accident during a lifeboat drill aboard the RRS SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH, the UK government’s new state-of-the-art polar research vessel.

That is the principal finding of an investigation released earlier this month by the UK Marine Accident Investigation Branch.

According to the investigators, a davit interlock device failed during the drill, causing the port lifeboat to fall into the water with three crewmembers on board.

After the lifeboat fell from the davit onto the ship’s deck, and before detaching from its hooks, it was dragged over the side by the moving davit arms.

Fortunately, the accident did not result in serious injuries to the three crewmembers.

RRS SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH had been delivered by the shipbuilder just a few months before the accident, which took place during a lifeboat drill off the Isle of Mull in Scotland.

It was the crew’s first opportunity to practice launching the lifeboat at sea.

The investigation revealed that the failure of the davit was due to severe corrosion caused by a lack of maintenance: required checks and planned maintenance on the davits had not been completed since they were installed on the ship in November 2019.

Investigators also found that the installation of the davits had not been fully completed and did not comply with the manufacturer’s instructions or international regulations.

Following the accident, the RRS SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH was returned to the builder’s yard for repairs, including completion of the davit installation.

Investigators identified several additional safety issues, including the failure of the safety equipment survey to identify the non-compliance of the davit installation with SOLAS regulations.

They also found that the ship’s crew had not received proper training in operating the davit, and that the ship’s operator had suspended maintenance of critical equipment.

Hyundai, Toyota, and Honda have all announced significant pay hikes for their U.S. workers following the UAW’s successful strike against General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis.

The UAW’s new contracts give workers an immediate pay increase of 11 percent and a total increase of 25 percent over the course of four-and-a-half years.

They raise the top UAW wage from $32 an hour to more than $40 an hour, and they include commitments by the companies to expand or reopen Midwestern factories that employ unionized workers.

The agreements also restore major benefits that UAW members were forced to give up during the 2008 recession, including cost-of-living allowances, a three-year wage progression, an end to wage tiers, and improvements in retirement benefits.

UAW President Sean Fain says the union has now set its sights on Nissan, Volkswagen, Toyota, and Tesla.

“We are organizing like hell to help thousands of autoworkers in this country, primarily in the South, to win their union and raise the living standards for the working-class,” Fain said in testimony before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on Nov. 14.

“For decades, non-union auto companies have used fear, uncertainty, and division to break union drives in our industry.”

“I’m here to promise you that those days are over.”

The Coast Guard has released additional guidance on vessel operator compliance with legal changes enacted to address sexual assault and sexual harassment under The James M. Inhofe National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023.

The guidance covers surveillance systems, crew training, reporting, and master key controls on select vessels.

An MSIB released on Nov. 14 gives an overview of the new guidance. The following four policy documents provide additional information.

CG-CVC Policy Letter 23-04 covers the statutory requirement for merchant vessels over 100 gross tons to post information regarding prohibitions on sexual assault and sexual harassment;
CG-CVC Policy Letter 23-05 covers the statutory requirement for certain vessels (including vessels with overnight accommodations for 10 or more persons on seagoing voyages of 600 or more miles) to install and maintain video and audio surveillance systems;
CG-CVC Policy Letter 23-06 covers the statutory requirement for inspected vessels to establish a master key control system;
CVC-WI-004(3) is a work instruction on flag state interpretations of the ISM Code to address the statutory requirement to report harassment, sexual harassment, and sexual assault.
The Coast Guard said it is reviewing these statutory requirements to determine whether further regulatory action is needed.
