Navies thwart pirate attack on Diamond Falcon

INTERVENTION from the Danish and Turkish navies forced Somalian pirates to abandon an attack on a Vietnamese vessel in the Gulf of Aden on Saturday, according to a statement from the Kongelige Danske Marine. Helicopters from the Absalon and Giresun were sent to the scene after a distress call from the ship, with the pirates turning tail on their arrival, the Danes said. The attack reportedly took place in a busy fishing zone, making it easier for the pirate craft to hide their intentions. Diamond Falcon sustained damage to its rudders as a result of the incident, in which shots were reportedly fired. The nationality and number of its crew were not clear. According to Lloyd’s Maritime Intelligence Unit, Diamond Falcon is a 2008-built, 22,695 dwt bulk carrier and is owned and operated by Falcon Shipping of Ho Chi Minh City.
