"Pirates seized a Greek-flagged supertanker with 25 crewmembers off the coast of Oman on Wednesday, Greece's Merchant Marine Ministry said. The Irene SL was sailing 200 nautical miles (360 kilometers) east of Oman with a cargo of 266,000 tons of crude oil and a crew of seven Greeks, 17 Filipinos and one Georgian when it was attacked, the ministry said. It earlier mistakenly identified one of the crew as Ukrainian." (02/09/11)
