Scare at sea: Attack on gas supertanker reignites debate about maritime self-defense

Fox News:

The rocket-propelled grenade fired from a small boat Tuesday at a liquefied natural gas tanker landed harmlessly on the massive vessel's deck, but still reignited a fierce debate about the right of sailors to defend themselves at sea.

The attack, off the coast of embattled Yemen, targeted the Spanish ship Galicia Spirit, hauling gas from Qatar, and raised the prospect of a terror attack on a spectacular scale.

“The use of RPGs in an attack against a vessel in this shipping choke point is very worrying,” UK security broker ASKET said in a note sent to industry insiders.
