South China Sea Pirates: Tanker Hijacked, Cargo Stolen

Reported by the ICC CCS Live Piracy Report here:
Location detail: Around 30nm North of Pulau Tioman
Type of Attack: Hijacked
28.08.2014: 2040 LT: Posn: 03:24N - 104:04E, Around 30nm North of Pulau Tioman, Malaysia.
Six armed pirates hijacked a product tanker underway. They took hostage all crew and locked them in the engine room. The pirates sailed the vessel to an unknown location where they transferred the cargo into another tanker. Before leaving the vessel the pirates destroyed all navigation and communication equipment and released the crew. The crew managed to repair the vessel and sailed to a safe port.
Need more Coast Guards out there.

And someone to track where these stolen cargoes are going.
