ALERT! - BANGLADESH, PIRACY

Twice pirates have attacked a member’s tanker while it was discharging cargo at a buoy mooring at Chittagong, Bangladesh.  A hired watchman was stationed on board.

The crew and the watchman fended off the first attack, injuring two of the pirates.  During the second attack the pirates managed to get away with a mooring rope.  The watchman and the crew were not injured during the two incidents.
