December 2 2002

A statement on the October Limburg attack by the Marine Navigation International Organization there has since been a decrease in the number of ships from and to Yemeni ports.
The report also indicates that the attack has already caused damage to the Yemeni economy due to an increase in insurance fees on ships.
The report confirmed that the organization will hold a conference in London next month to discuss security measures for sea transportation in the Middle East and minimize threats of the terrorist attacks against ships.
