Incident: Bulk carrier attacked

A Panama-flagged bulk carrier, not otherwise identified, is attacked, with crew using fire hoses to drive off would be boarders. "Nato officials on a nearby Portuguese warship said an unexploded rocket-propelled grenade landed in the commanding officer's cabin." [This item was appended to a larger story about Gulf of Aden incidents; presumably that is the site of the attack.] (BBC, 4/11/09 via Wikipedia)
