“Ocean Trust” Vessel hits by RPG
The west-bound container vessel “Ocean Trust” from General Santos City bound for Manila while at transit at vicinity waters of Milbuk, South Cotobato was fired by a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) by two (2) motorized banca on 24 February 2009 at around 11 o’clock in the evening. The two (2) bancas were each manned by two (2) unidentified persons. The banca on the left side of the vessel missed their target while the other on the right side hit the king post of the ship which shattered the glass of the ship’s bridge or main control room. “Ocean Trust” evaded the two (2) bancas which continued chasing them by maneuvering in zigzag manner.
