Vessel reports pirate approach in Sea of Oman
A merchant vessel reported the sighting of two potential pirate skiffs in the Sea of Oman recently. The pirate skiffs pursued the vessel for some time before the embarked armed security team fired warning shots to deter them.
The report, issued by the Dubai-based UK Maritime Trade Office (UKMTO), stated the two skiffs were spotted by a merchant vessel while in transit through the Sea of Oman on May 21. One skiff had four persons on board, while the other had three, all of whom ‘had masked faces and one person standing in the bow’.
