Large bulk carrier stationed in Taboneo, Indonesia robbed by pirates
An exceptionally large wool bulk carrier was robbed today. Pirates, bearing only large knives, lunged onto the "in-port" ship using grapple hooks and ropes. The pirates placed multiple hooks under piles of processed wool and began to carry them out.
After the wool was taken out of the ship , one Mercedes-Benz Axor truck and one Suzuki (model unknown by camera footage) light truck were used to quickly load the wool. The pirates then sped off into the general populous.
One man on-board the ship noticed the pirates, but out of fear for his life, did not act against them. Authorities were alerted and the situation is under investigation. No further information in relation to the case is being released by Indonesian police and military personnel.
