Four armed pirates in two skiffs came within 100 m of a tanker in the Gulf of Aden before opening fire on the vessel at 0820 hrs local time. The embarked armed security team returned fire, prompting the pirates to abort the attack and move away. Ladders were sighted on the skiff. The tanker sustained minor damage from the attack although crew were reported as safe.
