Pirates attack on a Greek oil tanker in the Gulf of Aden.

Greek authorities say a European Union naval force has averted an attempted pirate attack on a Greek oil tanker in the Gulf of Aden. The ship's 29 crew members are unhurt. A Merchant Marine Ministry statement says the Greek-flagged Kriti Episkopi came under attack by pirates twice while sailing off the pirate-infested coast of Somalia Friday. It says Greek authorities immediately notified the EU naval flotilla protecting shipping in the area, which sent a warplane and a helicopter to the tanker. A frigate is also approaching the scene of the attack.

A ministry spokesman says three speedboats were involved in the attack.

The Kriti Episkopi was carrying oil from the Persian Gulf to Greece. The attack occurred just before 0800GMT Friday.
