Greek suezmax Cap Theodora is chased by a pirates gang. Second attack.
Greek suezmax tanker Cap Theodora was attacked second time in less than a week in Gulf of Guinea, probably by the same mob. On Apr 22 13 at about 06:55 LT vessel which was under way was approached by a speed boat with some 5-6 pirates in it, in position 03 10N 007 14E. Pirates tried to board tanker, but like the first attack, failed, thwarted by water protection and maneuvering. A fishing trawler was spotted nearby, apparently a mother ship, with red hull and white superstructure. The scheme of attack and other things strongly suggest tanker was attacked by the same mob. Vessel continued voyage, no injures reported.
