06/09/2005 Entry: "Pirates of the Persian Gulf (not kidding)"

"Security has been increased at oil terminals in Basra after attacks

"Pirates armed with AK-47 assault rifles attacked the crew of a supertanker waiting to load crude at Iraq's Basra oil terminal before making off with cash, an ocean crime watchdog says.

"The raid happened at night on 31 May about 10 nautical miles from Iraq's deep-water oil terminal where most of its crude oil is exported.

"'They tried to enter the bridge claiming to be policemen. The master denied them entry and the pirates became violent ... they assaulted the master causing him injuries and demanded money,' the International Maritime Bureau (IMB) said in a report on Wednesday."

It never ceases to amaze me that there are still pirates raiding ships. It shouldn't amaze me, piracy is evergreen or something, but there you have it. More on modern piracy in the Weekly Piracy Report. I'll have to read this more often to stay au courant.
