The Indian Navy foiled an attempted pirate attack on a Greek merchant ship in the Gulf of Aden between Yemen and Somalia, the navy’s western command said.

Officials said the operation was launched Saturday morning when Indian Naval warship INS Godavari on routine patrol in the pirate-infested region received an alert from cargo vessel MV Elinakos that it was being chased by a skiff.
