Somalia pirates takes shots at tanker
Somalia pirates have exchanged shots with a guarded safety crew onboard a Leopard tanker vessel, in what appears to be the first incident within the region this year. Over three courses, pirates shot at the 50.000-dwt Leopard Sun tanker last night 165 nautical miles from the Somalia city Hobyo.
A safety crew onboard the tanker, which is owned by Vitol and Grindrod, shot back at the ship and has just been reported to be in safety. Leopard Sun was on its way to Capetown when the incident occurred.
