Pirates hijack a VLCC

According to LLoyd List the U.S. Navy is reporting that a VLCC (Very Large Crude Carrier) has been hijacked in the Red Sea S.E. of Kenya. That is not the Red Sea

This is going to be a wake-up call. There has been some discussion of the link between terrorism and piracy - here is a good article: Terrorism and Piracy: The Dual Threat to Maritime Shipping it from Global Terrorism Analysis


UPDATE: Eagle 1 has this story covered at Somali Pirates Grab a Large Saudi Tanker
