The captain and crew of an oil tanker have won a bravery award from the International Maritime Organization for their four-and-a-half-hour battle to put out an onboard fire after a missile strike.

The 110,000-dwt Marlin Luanda (built 2018) was carrying 84,000 tonnes of naphtha from Suez to Incheon, South Korea, on 26 January when it was hit by a Houthi missile, igniting a cargo tank.
