Pirates of the Malacca Strait Strike

For the first time in quite some time, a report of piracy in the Malacca Strait here:
The Patrawarin 2 was on passage from Rayong carrying 2,000 tonnes of A-1 jet fuel for Phuket when the six-strong armed gang boarded from a speedboat in the Straits of Malacca off Singapore on Thursday. They threatened the five Thai crew members at gun point, handcuffed them and robbed them of a total of baht600,000 (US$18,900) in cash and valuables.
