Incident: Tanker pursued

A tanker in the Gulf of Aden was chased by men in "several skiffs" but evaded pursuit. No details. (Based on positional information, this is not a duplicate report - ed.) (ONI Worldwide Threat to Shipping, 6/19/09)

The information correlates to an IMB report placing it in the Gulf of Aden near the Bab El Mandab. If the correlation is correct, this was an LNG tanker. (ICC/IMB Website)
