On the morning of 30 October 2010, the Malta-flagged MV Go Trader was reported under attack from one skiff approximately 280 nautical miles (520 kilometres) south east from Salalah, Oman. Pirates had managed to board the vessel; however, after a couple of hours they eventually abandoned it, after having been unable to get control over the crew who had locked themselves in the ship’s citadel. The 24 crewmembers are reported safe.
