Supply Surprise

The Finnish minelayer “Pohjanmaa” has docked in Oman to refuel and resupply after an anti-piracy patrol in the Arabian Sea.

Supplies had run low because countries in the region were unwilling to service the vessel while it is carrying 18 suspected pirates taken into custody last week.

Finnish Naval Headquarters reported that it is highly unusual that Oman would allow a ship to dock that is carrying suspected pirates onboard. The vessel had a rather high profile success recently when it undertook to destroy a dhow used by pirates.
