A 10,734 GRT chemical tanker, hijacked by pirates shortly after the cargo was loaded and the voyage commenced has been recovered as a result of co-ordinated actions by law enforcement agencies in South East Asia, reported the ICC's International Maritime Bureau (IMB)
An alarming rise in the number of piracy attacks off the coast of Somalia is reported by the ICC International Maritime Bureau (IMB). After a quiet spell of nearly two years, says the bureau, serious attacks by heavily-armed pirates have resumed: 25 in the past six months.
