Anti-piracy contingent suffers accident

Ambulances hastily move injured members of the anti-piracy contingent Cheonghae at a naval port in Changwon, some 400 kilometers southeast of Seoul, on May 24, 2019. The accident, which killed a soldier and injured four others, took place as the ship's rope that is tied to a dock broke when the ship entered the port. The 28th contingent of the unit returned after operating in the Gulf of Aden to protect South Korean and foreign commercial vessels from Somali pirates. The unit has been on the mission since 2009.
