Incident: Trawler attacked

A fishing trawler (not otherwise identified) is attacked in the Indian Ocean by five pirates in a single skiff who fire upon the trawler and try to board it. "The master conducted evasive maneuvers, increased speed, and moved away. The ship sustained bullet hole damage. There was no leakage and no casualties."
