The ship turned to Reunion island, alerting MRCC Reunion and asking for medevac. Wounded sailor was medevaced by helicopter early in the morning Feb 5, and transferred to hospital. Tanker reportedly, will have to call Reunion for investigation. No details given on the attacker, except that he was isolated. Understood he’s to be handed over to Reunion police.
