UPDATE

UPDATE - 17th April 2006

Lt . Commander Charlie Brown of the U.S. 5th Fleet Bahrain reports

that investigation by navy ships sent to investigate found that no

attack had taken place. The crew of the ketch "Tir na Nog" had become

alarmed at the activities of "fishing boats" and had called for help.

Great news that the U.S. and Dutch Navies reacted so positively. Thanks

from everyone

regards
