PERILS OF THE SEA | Full City escapes from pirates

Retrieved from Tradewinds, 2011.05.05:

Armed pirates using two skiffs attacked the 26,800-dwt Full City early this morning in the Southern Arabian Sea, sources say.

They managed to board the vessel and there were some suggestions the ship had been hijacked.

Indian, Chinese and NATO warships raced to the scene and a boarding party has now confirmed the pirates have left.

The Full City was en route from Jeddah to India when the attack took place.
