A Greek-owned ultra-large containership has had a close encounter with pirates during a recent transit of the Gulf of Aden.

The incident involved the Enesel-controlled 13,806-teu Thalassa Niki (built 2013) and took place in position 13°50.97' N, 51° 26.18' E.

The incident took place in the latter part of February, but news of the incident has gone largely unreported by the media.
