A BSM 45,744dwt tanker was heading yesterday for Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, when a small craft full of pirates came alongside about 600 miles south west of India, said the company, which is technical manager for the ship.
The crew members took refuge in an impregnable citadel area onboard, where they remained for about 14 hours. The crew regained control when the pirates fled.
Small-arms fire was reported during the attack. No injuries reported
