Popularity of Yemen, I like 75%


Pirates fired a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) into a fuel oil tanker near the Yemeni port of Aden on Wednesday morning, but the vessel and its cargo were recovered, the ship manager said.

The 26 crew members on board the Brillante Virtuoso, which was carrying over 141,000 tonnes of fuel oil from Ukraine to Qingdao in China, abandoned ship after pirates fired into their bedroom block in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

"It is understood that the pirates fired RPG into the accommodation area, which started a fire," ship manager Central Mare Inc. said in a statement.

"As a result the pirates abandoned their efforts to take control of the shp and left the scene, and the master ordered evacuation of all crew members."
