Ukranian Sailors’ Pirate Scare in Romania

A Ukranian boat called for police support on Wednesday afternoon, claiming the ship was under a pirate attack, while mooring in Romanian waters, on the Danube-Black Sea Channel, according to PRO TV. Some men had, indeed, boarded the ship without permission, apparently trying to steal some scrap iron – the boat’s cargo.

The 5 sailors that were aboard the ship baricaded in their cabins and immediately called 112, the Romanian emergency number. The “pirates” made of with some of the loot before the police arrived at the scene. The suspects were quickly apprehended and claimed innocence – although police say the suspects have several prior convictions.
