The 'Hyperion Ray' suffered no damage after reports that Iranian forces had fired a missile at the vessel in the Gulf of Oman.

"The MV Hyperion Ray incurred no damage and is continuing at full speed on its original voyage," it said.

Dockers blocked ship in Hambantota
The "Hyperion Highway" berthed at Sri Lanka’s Hambantota port on Dec 6, 2016, completed operations on Dec 7, and was to leave Hambantota, bound for Sohar Port in Oman, but was blocked by trade union dockers, and as of Dec 10, was still in port. Tugs and pilot could not reach the vessel, as dockers surrounded vessel with barbed wire, threw stones and on Dec 9 tried to climb aboard. The Navy had to intervene, in order to protect the vessel. The dockers were protesting against a Chinese firm, which was to take over the port including all staff.Upload News
