Gem of Kilakarai

Fué atacado por piratas la semana pasada en el Golfo de Aden, una de las granadas que le dispararon no explotó y los yankis tuvieron el detalle de bajar a retirarsela despues de echar a los piratas. La noticia la envía Manuel.

The Gem of Kilakarai, a Singaporean cargo ship, came under attack by pirates in the Gulf of Aden Aug. 8, fired on with small-arms and rifle-launched grenades. The crew of USS Peleliu (LHA 5) and the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, received a distress call from the Gem of Kilakarai and immediately launched interdiction flights to run off the pirates. During the attack, an unexploded rifle-launched grenade lodged in the bridge wing of the Gem of Kilakarai. While no injuries were reported, further assistance from the 15th MEU Explosive Ordinance Disposal team was requested. A security detachment from Battalion Landing Team 2/5, along with the EOD team from Combat Logistics Battalion-15, were taken aboard the Gem of Kilakarai on two UH-1N Huey helicopters from Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron-165. The unexploded grenade was properly disposed of with no further incident
