Hijacked Sirius Star Anchored

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

A report from the Wall Street Journal said that Pirates who seized a Saudi supertanker loaded with $100 million in crude oil anchored the ship within sight of impoverished Somali fishing villages Tuesday, Nov. 18.

NATO said it would not divert any of its three warships from the Gulf of Aden and the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet also said it did not expect to send ships to try to intercept the MV Sirius Star.

Meanwhile, pirates hijacked a Hong Kong-owned, Iranian-operated cargo ship in the Gulf of Aden near the Yemeni coast.
