Update on the hijacking of Zafirah

By Piracy

The ReCAAP Information Sharing Centre informed that the tanker Zafirah was attacked by pirates off Con Son Island, Vietnam on 19 November.
Next day, crew members were found and rescued by a local fishing ship. 2 days after the rescue, a Vietnam Marine Police Special Task Force found the tanker and arrested 11 suspected pirates.
The tanker had been renamed and had a new IMO number.
This operation was successful because of the collaboration and sharing vital information.
