A German Replenishment Tanker FGS Spessart part of Standing NATO Maritime Group 1 heading towards the Horn of Africa was confronted by Pirates trying to get access to it. It appears that pirates mistaken this tanker for a merchant oiler and wanted to hi-jack this vessel.
Fortunately, nothing happened and there were no casualties on either end. Other naval ships came to assist Spessart and are now tracking this pirate vessel but there is no amplifying information on its progress.
