CMF unit interdicts another heroin shipment off Tanzania

Combined Maritime Forces (CMF)

Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) ship HMAS Melbourne has seized 353 kilograms of pure heroin off the Tanzanian coast, less than three weeks after Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship Toronto, a former CMF unit, seized 280 kilograms in the same area.

Her Majesty’s Australian Ship (HMAS) Melbourne, operating under the command of the Australian-led Combined Task Force (CTF) 150, used her embarked S-70B Seahawk helicopter to locate the suspicious fishing vessel operating about 140 nautical miles east-north-east of Dar es Salaam while conducting maritime security operations in the region.
