Attempted Boarding of Chemical Tanker at Tanjung Uban Anchorage

August 07: Three unauthorized persons in a wooden boat came alongside an unspecified anchored Panama-flagged chemical tanker at 04:00 LT at Tanjung Uban anchorage. They attempted to board the tanker using hooks attached with ropes. The duty officer on security rounds on the bridge noticed the robbers and raised the alarm, sounded the ship’s whistle and shouted at the three men. Hearing the alarm and seeing the alert crew, the three aborted the attempted boarding and escaped.
