Greek bulk carrier with Turkish and Syrian seamen seized in Libyan waters
Bulk carrier SANTORINI was intercepted by Libyan forces on Mar 11 in Libyan waters off Susah, for allegedly, “sailing into Libyan waters, namely waters off Derna, without authorization”. Libyan forces had to fire warning shots to compel SANTORINI to stop and allow military team to board the ship. The ship was taken to anchorage off Ras Al Hilal, east of Susah. SANTORINI left Alexandria on Mar 9, port of destination unknown, probably there’s more in this seizure, than the lack of “proper authorization”. 21 crew include Turkish and Syrian nationalities.
