Italian fishing vessel seized by Libyan Coast Guard

Italian fishing vessel, identified as FV TRAMONTANA, was seized by Libyan Coast Guard on Jul 22 in Gulf of Sidra, some 50 nm off Libyan coast, while reportedly, catching shrimp. Libya considers 50-mile zone as her exclusive economic zone, claim strongly opposed by Italy and other coastal States in the region. Seizure of TRAMONTANA seems to be one more incident in never ending fishing wars, having nothing to do with political mess in the region. TRAMONTANA was taken to Misurata port, according to Italian MFA statement.
