Close Encounter

A tanker has managed to avoid capture after  a close encounter with pirates off Oman.

Pirates attacked from a single skiff and targeted the 76,000-dwt “BW Danube” (built 2007).

There has been no confirmation that shots were fired by the pirates, however pirate paraphernalia, including boarding ladders were clearly seen in the skiff as it closed on the tanker. An unarmed security team was stationed on board.
