first_imgThe 52,600 dwt chemical tanker Ance was attacked by pirates on September 16 while it was anchored some 5 nautical miles off Conakry, Guinea.Four pirates armed with a gun and knives boarded the tanker in the early morning hours, according to data provided by IMB Piracy Reporting Centre.The perpetrators reportedly took the duty AB hostage, tied his hands and forced him to lead them to the bridge. Once inside the bridge the robbers took the duty officer hostage and forced him to lead them to the Captain, Chief Engineer, third officer and bosun’s cabins, IMB PRC added.After looting the cabins, the robbers locked the crew in a cabin and escaped. Crew personal belongings, cash and ship’s properties were stolen, the report shows.The operator of the vessels, Latvia-based ship manager LSC Ltd, emphasized that there were no injuries to the crew members adding that the entire crew is in “good spirit and health”.

Police Increasing Patrols Through Labor Day

first_imgBATESVILLE – Two local law enforcement agencies are stepping up enforcement efforts through the next month.The Batesville Police Department told us that they along with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department will add more patrols in an effort to curb drunk driving between August 1 and September 1.The crackdown is in conjunction with The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Law enforcement agencies across the nation are participating in the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign.In 2012, Labor Day weekend saw 147 drunk-driving fatalities. To put it in perspective, throughout the year someone is killed in an alcohol-impaired-driving crash every 51 minutes, on average. Over the Labor Day weekend, that statistic jumps to one alcohol-impaired-driving fatality every 34 minutes.Among the people killed in drunk-driving crashes over the 2012 Labor Day holiday weekend, almost half were between the ages of 18 and 34.“We are determined to help bring these numbers down,” said Batesville Police Lt. Doug Wolfer. “There are too many people dying on the roads, and many of those deaths could have been prevented.”last_img read more

Ferguson: Four more wins

first_img United briefly extended their lead at the top of the table to 18 points with a 1-0 win at Sunderland, the seventh on the trot, although reigning champions Manchester City reduced the deficit once again a few hours later with their victory over Newcastle. The pair meet at Old Trafford next weekend and Ferguson told Sky Sports: “We have got to win four games, I think to get there, but the important thing is to focus on the next match, and that’s Manchester City at home.” Sir Alex Ferguson has set his players the task of winning four more games to assure themselves of the Barclays Premier League title. He added: “I think the players have galvanised themselves, their team spirit, their concentration, their focus in every game – and it’s 25 wins in 30 league games, which I think is a record, and that’s all down to the efforts of the players.” The victory at the Stadium of Light extended United’s run to 18 league games without defeat and means they have collected 50 of the last 54 points they have contested. United have an FA Cup quarter-final replay trip to Chelsea to come first, and midfielder Michael Carrick said: “It’s obviously getting closer because it’s one game less and we have won again. But that’s all it is. We have still got to go again. “We have got another game on Monday and then obviously City next week, so we will keep going.” The win was secured by Titus Bramble’s 27th-minute own goal, and although Sunderland, who have now not won in eight games, rallied after a lacklustre first-half display, they rarely looked like snatching a point. Bramble can count himself unfortunate – Robin van Persie’s shot clipped full-back Phil Bardsley and looked to be flying wide until it hit his knee and nestled inside the far post. Asked if it was his goal, Van Persie, who had not scored for his club since February 10, said: “Of course, there’s no question about that. It’s been a while, so it’s always good to score again. It was a really important goal. Today, it was all about the three points, so we got them.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Sharif shines as Scotland struggle

first_img Sorensen took four wickets for 32 runs as Scotland’s second innings started as badly as their first at Clontarf. Scotland were on 41 for six and struggling to see out the third day’s play before Majid Haq and Sharif stopped the rot. Press Association Safyaan Sharif again added a semblance of respectability to Scotland’s batting against Ireland but the home side remain well on their way to an innings victory in their Intercontinental Cup clash in Dublin after Max Sorensen destroyed the Scots’ top order.center_img The Scots ended the day on 143 for eight – still 69 runs behind Ireland’s first-innings total of 350 – and heading for defeat early on Saturday. Ireland started in the morning on 99 for one after a rain-affected second day and both John Anderson (56) and Paul Stirling (65) knocked up half-centuries as the home side produced a consistent batting display. But Haq and Moneeb Iqbal both took four wickets to allow Scotland back in with the bat. That did not prove a pleasant experience for the visitors as Sorensen set about them. Hamish Gardiner followed his first-innings duck with a score of six, and his fellow opener Freddie Coleman experienced the ignominy of a no-score. All together, the four Scots batsmen who fell to Sorensen only scored 10 runs, with Preston Mommsen and Calum MacLeod also victims of the South African-born medium-fast bowler. But Sharif again top-scored for Scotland with a 60, adding to his first-innings total of 41, before being caught out by a fantastic full-length left-handed catch by Ireland captain William Porterfield. That signalled stumps with Ireland set to quickly finish the job in the morning. last_img read more

Ki secures draw for Swansea

first_img The South Korean had been away for five weeks and he struck with a diving header halfway through the second period after having an earlier effort disallowed. Jermain Defoe’s regal finish before the watching Prince Albert of Monaco had threatened to give Sunderland all three Barclays Premier League points. Press Association Sunderland had built rare momentum after their first back-to-back wins of the season, following up their league victory over Burnley with a midweek FA Cup victory at Fulham. And the Black Cats settled well, even if Bafetimbi Gomis had the first shot of the contest from 25 yards which just flew wide of Costel Pantilimon’s goal. Anthony Reveillere cut in between Neil Taylor and Nathan Dyer and crossed for former Swansea favourite Jordi Gomez to drive wide. Swansea slowly got their passing game together but Jonjo Shelvey and Dyer both failed to hit the target under pressure before the Sunderland defence was opened up by the slickest attack of the half. Taylor and Dyer were both heavily involved before Shelvey played the ball into the danger area. Modou Barrow could not collect but the ball ran free to Gomis and he was denied by a brave stop from Pantilimon, who threw himself at the feet of the Frenchman. Swansea thought they had taken a lead four minutes before half-time when Shelvey swung in a free-kick and Ki slotted home, but it was ruled out by a flagging assistant with television replays showing that it was incredibly tight. Swansea seemed to be still thinking about that close call when Sunderland broke moments later as Liam Bridcutt found Defoe just inside enemy territory. Defoe was allowed to advance and he slipped outside Federico Fernandez and unleashed a 20-yard shot past the helpless Lukasz Fabianski – his second goal in as many league games after being on the scoresheet against Burnley. Ki Sung-yueng marked his return from the Asian Cup in Australia by salvaging Swansea a point in a 1-1 draw against his old club Sunderland. It was poor defending from Swansea’s perspective but further evidence that former England striker Defoe still possesses the touch of a master marksman after his MLS sojourn in Toronto. Sunderland claimed a penalty at the start of the second half when Ricky Alavarez tumbled over Ashley Williams’ outstretched leg but referee Phil Dowd was not interested, and Fernandez wasted a decent chance for Swansea when he lashed over a bouncing ball in a crowded penalty area. Swansea were probing and starting to build up a head of steam but Williams had to react smartly to stop Danny Graham – starting his first game for Sunderland since May 2013 – profiting from Gomez’s cross to the near post and that intervention proved crucial after 66 minutes. Kyle Naughton sent in a superb cross from the right and Ki ensured he would not be denied a second time with a firm diving header, with the Sunderland defence failing to mark for once. Shelvey went close with a 25-yard free-kick and Pantilimon pushed aside substitute Nelson Oliveira’s late effort but but Sunderland held firm to collect a point they probably deserved. last_img read more
