‘Hamburg Bridge’ escapes pirate attack off Gulf of Aden

‘Hamburg Bridge’ escapes pirate attack off Gulf of Aden

The ship sustained some minor damage to the hull but accelerated and took evasive manoeuvres resulting in the pirates ending their pursuit after about 45 minutes.

None of the Philippine crew was injured in the attack and no oil leaked from the hull.

The Panamanian flagged vessel continued her intended voyage to Port Said via the Suez Canal by her own power.
