Tanker attacked by pirates

Tanker attacked by pirates
Trinidad and Tobago’s Ministry of Transport reports in an emailed statement the LPG tanker Virgo Gas was attacked on 10 July in the vicinity of Port of Spain.
According to spokesperson Beverly Phillip, Director of Maritime Services at the Ministry of Transport, 8-10 men aboard three small fishing vessels boarded the ship via the stern. “The men were armed with machetes, knives, one 9mm pistol and pieces of wood. They assaulted and robbed the Master and crew members holding them captive for approximately thirty minutes.”
 
It’s unclear who actually owns the vessel as she has switched owners in recent years.
