Tanker Escape

A Singaporean chemical tanker survived an Easter brush with pirates off Somalia.

Shots were fired at the 33,374-dwt “MV Atlantia” on Easter Sunday as a gang looked to take control of the ship.

Pirates used two skiffs to launch the attack half way between Somali and Madagascar, sources say.  The vessel, owned by Glory Shipmanagement of Singapore, did not have armed guards on board but was not captured.
