The attack was aborted due to presence of 7 Navy Personnel that were onboard the vessel and the implementation of anti-piracy measures.

The exchange of fire lasted for 20 minutes, and several bullets penetrated the cabins and alleyway.

A ladder was observed in the speedboats.

The crew mustered in the citadel, and no crew were harmed.
