Limassol, Cyprus-This cargo ship carrying 3,000 tons of flammable sulfur ran aground off the coast of Somalia and was entering water.

On October 26, the subject of an email from the crew of the MV Haj Abdullah was "SOS", stating that the hull of the 260-foot-long ship broke and the sea water sloshed from the deck into diesel fuel. The sailors had almost no food, and months have passed since the last time the owner paid. The waters around them are notorious for pirates.
