Southeast Asia hub of global pirate attacks

Southeast Asia hub of global pirate attacks | International Relations | Scoop.it
Southeast Asia has become the world's hotspot for pirate attacks after an international clampdown slashed the number of hijackings off the coast of war-torn Somalia, the UN said Thursday. Last year 28 boats were attacked in the western Indian Ocean but none taken captive in the region, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) said in a report. That compares to January 2011, when Somali pirates held 736 hostages and 32 boats, some onshore and others on their vessels. "There has been a significant reduction in the number of pirate attacks during 2013, to the extent one can claim they have almost stopped," UNITAR said after its five-year study.

N. Korea receives little criticism for this kind of behavior in the US media.  Perhaps news sources feel if they don't talk about totalitarian regimes at work,  the acts of these regimes never happen.  Perhaps Kim Jung Un will petition Google to have previous posts removed.
