Latest ICC Commercial Crime Services Weekly Piracy Report (to 15 Dec 05)


For the latest ICC-CCS Weekly piracy report, go here. Few reports, one of some interest off coast of Vietnam:
02.12.2005 at 0200 LT in position 10:19N - 108:50E, off Vietnam, South China Sea. Persons in a fishing boat attempted to board a LPG tanker underway using a hook attached to a rope. Master altered course to prevent boarding. After a few attempts fishing boat gave up and fled.
Red blob on map is my estimate of location of attempted boarding. Lots of little LPG tankers roam the coasts of SE Asia. Photo is an LPG carrier.
