Tuesday, November 17, 2009

On 16 November in the Gulf of Aden, the Ukrainian Cargo Ship MV Lady Juliet (flagged St Vincent & The Grenadines) heading West was attacked by pirates firing Kalashnikovs and rocket propelled grenades. The attack commenced when two small skiffs detached from a mother ship and made a fast approach towards the MV Lady Juliet not realizing that a Vessel Protection Detachment was onboard. The VPD returned fire and the skiffs broke off their attack. There are no casualties onboard the MV Lady Juliet and it is not confirmed if any of the attacking pirates were injured.
