Oil tanker missing off Selangor

PETALING JAYA - An oil tanker has been reported missing, probably hijacked, in Selangor waters, the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency said.

The agency is expected to hold a press conference on the missing vessel MT Jaoquim.

On June 11, oil tanker MT Orkim Harmony, carrying 6,000 tonnes of petrol, was hijacked by pirates enroute to Kuantan Port from Malacca.

The ship with 22 crewmen were released unharmed before the pirates were caught in Vietnam waters.
