PIRATES!

. Thursday, February 4, 2010

Another ship was seized by pirates yesterday, the third of the new year. The hijacking was of a North Korean flagged cargo ship that is owned by a Libyan company and was seized in the Gulf of Aden.


Some cool little stats: Last year "Somali pirates attached 217 ships last year, according to the Piracy Reporting Center of the International Maritime Bureau. There were 47 successful hijackings, with 867 crew members being taken hostage." There are still about 200 hostages being held by pirates off in Somalia.
