As per comments from Neil Roberts, Head of Marine and Aviation at Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA): ‘It was decided that the situation around Guyana required a precautionary listing. In addition, the  Red Sea Listed Area has been extended by 3 degrees north to factor in missile range (…) The older Somalia area was left effectively unchanged after reports of missiles and the definite hi-jacking of MV Ruen’
