Deadliest year in a decade for piracy
BBC |
"The body that monitors piracy around the world has reported a sharp rise in the number of ships crew killed in the first half of 2004. The International Maritime Bureau says 30 crew members were killed, twice as many as in the same period last year. It is the highest number of piracy related killings for a decade, despite a global fall in the number of attacks. Half of those killed were in Nigerian waters. Other hot spots were Vietnam, Bangladesh, and the Philippines."
