SINGAPORE: A tanker - believed to be managed by a Singapore firm - had a close shave with pirates in the South China Sea early this morning (June 15, 12.45am).
The Singapore Navy said in a statement on Facebook today (June 15) that it sent a vessel to help the tanker.
The RSS Gallant was the first vessel to arrive at the scene before it was joined by its Malaysian and Indonesian counterparts.
The three navies fended off the attack, but the pirate ship managed to flee the scene. - CNA/ir
