Incident: Nedlloyd Barentsz attacked

The container ship Nedlloyd Barentsz is fired upon in the Gulf of Aden; six men in a small craft fire rifle-propelled grenades (RPGs) at the ship. The Russian frigate Admiral Vinogradov sends a helicopter to rescue Barentsz and its crew wounds three of the assailants before capturing the all pirates and turning them over to Yemen for justice.
