Esbern Snare comes home on Friday

Esbern Snare comes home on Friday

17-12-2014 16:00:00


After having been deployed to international missions since September 2013, the Danish warship Esbern Snare is finally returning to Denmark this Friday. The ship joined the hunt for Somali pirates on December 7 and is now on its way home to Frederikshavn.

This also completes Denmark's pirate strategy, which expires at new year, fyens.dk wrote, quoting Ritzau. The Government, however is preparing a new pirate strategy, but if that means that Esbern Snare will be deployed to the waters off Somalia once again, is not yet known.

Esbern Snare participated in NATO's anti-piracy operation Ocean Shield off Somalia on 21 September 2013. In December 2013, Esbern Snare was sent to the Mediterranean, where it was the flagship of the Danish led operation Recsyr, which aimed to transport chemical weapons from Syria. Esbern Snare was deployed there until May this year, when the ship sailed back to the Indian Ocean, where Esbern Snare was inserted as flagship for Ocean Shield.
