MV Sinin Believed Pirated in Arabian Sea

Sunday, February 13, 2011
On the afternoon of 12 February, the MV Sinin is believed to have been pirated approximately 350 nautical miles East of Masirah (Oman) in the North Arabian Sea.  
 
The vessel, which has a crew of 23 (13 Iranian and 10 Indian nationals), sent out a distress signal, saying she was under attack, late afternoon on Saturday to which an aircraft from the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) immediately responded.  The aircraft photographed 2 suspected pirate skiffs on board the vessel. There has been no communication with the ship since the distress signal was sent and the MV Sinin has now changed course towards the Somali coast.  There is no information on the condition of the crew.  
 
The MV Sinin is a Maltese flagged and owned Bulk Carrier.  She has a deadweight of 52,466 tonnes and was on route to Singapore from Fujairah (UAE) when she was attacked. The ship was not registered with MSC(HOA) and was not reporting to UKMTO. EUNAVFOR is monitoring the situation.
