28.07.2009: 2157 LT: Posn: 04:39.2N 112:45.0E, 75 nm off Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia.

Twelve pirates, in a seven-meter long, unlit boat approached a container ship underway. They chased the ship and tried to get alongside. 3/O raised alarm, took evasive manoeuvres, alerted crewmembers and master fired three rocket flares. Pirates aborted the attempt.
