Hijacked Saudi Oil Tanker

I was watching the news this morning and caught into my attention this about this giant Saudi oil tanker that was hijacked nearby to Somalia. Hopefully, the hijacker will not hurt any of the crews of the ship. I think for this month alone, pirates have seized a Japanese cargo ship off Somalia, a Chinese fishing boat off Kenya and a Turkish ship transporting chemicals off Yemen. The Ship is owned by the Saudi company Aramco, it made its maiden voyage in March. The ship's operator, Vela International, said all of the crew were reported to be safe and that response teams had been mobilized to ensure their safe release. As well as the two Britons, the ship's crew members are said to be from Croatia, the Philippines, Poland and Saudi Arabia.

Please pray for the safety of the crews and their family.
