The Iranian navy has confronted pirates who attacked an Iranian oil tanker in the Gulf of Aden, Iranian state television reported on Saturday.

Iranian television said pirates on 11 speedboats attacked a 150,000-tonne tanker on Thursday, and television showed footage of the Iranian navy firing at pirate boats.

The Iranian navy has expanded its control over the past few years, sending ships to the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden to protect Iranian vessels from pirates.
