SOMALI PIRATES SHOOT AT TANKER   2 comments

Pirates have fired upon a products tanker off the coast of Somalia, the IMB reported. The ship was travelling 115nm south of Salalah, Oman on 17 January when it was fired upon by men in a skiff that had been launched from a mother ship. The alarm was raised, and the crew retreated to the unnamed ship’s citadel while the on-boardsecurity guards¬†returned fire. The pirates subsequently called off their attack, the IMB report added. The IMB recorded just six attacks during the whole of 2013 in the Gulf of Aden, compared with 117 in 2009, the year that Somali piracy was at its height.
