According to EU naval data, there are currently no hostages of commercial vessels off the coast of Somalia, but at least seven fishing vessels are being held hostage. These boats are mainly used by pirates to take commercial ships hostage. Four groups of pirates are still active off the coast of Somalia, the report said.

Bangladesh Merchant Marine Officers Association President Captain Anam Chowdhury told Prothom Alo that the ships of Bangladesh depend on getting the fare for the transportation of goods. MV Abdullah was not saved even after sailing a safe distance (600 nautical miles) from the coast of Somalia. For this, the ships that pass through the dangerous area and close to the dangerous area should follow the regulations of the Bangladesh authorities. Because once a voyage costs millions of dollars, millions of dollars of assets and lives of sailors will be protected.
