UPDATE: Gunfire and bodies dumped

In a text message from the Russian executive officer following the MV Straat Malakka, he says there has been sporadic gunfire from the pirated vessel, and eight to 10 bodies have been thrown overboard.

As the gunfire took place, the vessel lost speed and changed course. However, he says the gunfire ended and the ship seems to be back on course to Eyl, Somalia.
