Citadel Saviour

A hijack attempt on a Greek tanker has been thwarted after the crew hid in an onboard citadel and a Russian warship rushed to rescue the vessel.

Gunmen from two skiffs boarded the 162,000-dwt “United Emblem” on Saturday and headed to the engine room.

EUNAVFOR reported the vessel as having been hijacked. With the crew locked in the citadel the Russian frigate “Severomorsk” had time to act.
