Yemen Update


  • Date: 27/03/2015

Further to yesterday's announcement the Managers' Agents have received updated reports that the rebel forces have taken over the city of Aden and that the port of Aden is closed.

Following the air strikes launched by a Saudi-led coalition, the possibility of ground and naval offensives in Yemen has grown significantly as Egypt declared its readiness to send aerial, naval and ground support "if necessary".

The airports and ports would be possible targets.

Members are advised to exercise extreme caution, and to consult reliable local sources and/or maritime risk experts in the area for the most up-to-date information.
