• Pirates kidnap three in Singapore tanker


    KUALA LUMPUR: Heavily-armed pirates have boarded a Singapore-managed tanker in the Strait of Malacca, kidnapping three Indonesian crew and stealing some of its cargo of diesel fuel, the International Maritime Bureau said on Wednesday. The attack occurred early on Tuesday off Malaysia’s west coast, said Noel Choong, head of the IMB’s Kuala Lumpur-based Piracy Reporting Centre. The tanker was believed en route to Myanmar. It added that the pirates brought in other tankers that pumped out some of the vessel’s diesel and kidnapped three crew members.
