Reuters– A Saudi-owned crude oil tanker was hijacked today off the coast of Kenya and is now on its way to Eyl, Somalia on the Indian Ocean Coast. This hijacking comes only four days after two Royal Navy ships encircled and claimed victory over Somali pirates off the coast of Yemen. “The Sirius Star held a cargo of as much as two million barrels of oil- more than one quarter of Saudi Arabia’s daily production,” noted Reuters, when it was attacked 450 nautical miles southeast of Mombasa, Kenya.
