Quotes

"It's the first time this has happened so far north in the Malacca Strait, and the first time they have kidnapped the crew. It's not an area where we have seen the modus operandi of ships hijacked for their cargo" he told Reuters
"There is a possibility that the abducted crew was involved in the hijack based on new leads and that their personal documents, clothes and belongings were taken along with then" the agency said in a statement
"We are doing a thorough investigation. We have ruled out kidnapping because no ransom demand has been made" said Abdul Rahim Abdullah, Malaysia's maritime police deputy commander
"IMB is aware of the attack on the Singapore-managed ship in the Malacca Straits" he said, adding that IMB was concerned about the kidnapped crew
