Dear Sirs,

 It has been reported recently that a Panamanian flagged reefer vessel was attacked by pirates off Benin hijacking three of the crew and then leaving the vessel drifting at Gulf of Guinea.  Operators trading their vessels to that region are highly recommended to increase their security measures adopting Best Management Practices (BMP4).  As the area is part of Joint War Committee's Perils Listed Areas, operators are recommended to give notice to insurers to extend their war policies and additionally consider buying additional insurances such as Kidnap and Ransom.
