ccording to anti-piracy task force EU NAVFOR, the bulk carrier M/V Sinar Kudus was hijacked by pirates approximately 320 nautical miles North Eas of the island of Socotra in the Somali Basin.  Just hours after her capture, the vessel was boarded by 30 to 50 pirates and used as a mothership for an attack another bulker, the M/V Emperor.  That attack however went unsuccesful when the pirates were repelled by group armed guards aboard the Emperor.
