The hijacked tanker MT Orkim Harmony, which had 6,000 tonnes of petrol in its hold and 22 crew aboard, has been given fresh touches of paint and had its name altered to “Kim Harmon” by pirates.

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.
