(B2) The maritime protection team of the Montenegrin forces which ensured the protection of the ships of the WFP (the world food programme), within the framework of the European operation EUNAVFOR Atalanta, during these three months is completing its mission. During their last delivery trip, they ensured nearly 19 days aboard the MV Esbjerg which was ferrying 10.000 tonnes of humanitarian aid to Somali ports. The team of the Montenegrin armed forces had embarked in mid-May on board the World Food Program ship which is transiting the Indian Ocean to supply Somalia.
