Gulf of Guinea is world’s worst piracy hotspot

Graphic News

July 2, 2019 -- West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea has become the world’s most pirate-infested sea, according to the International Maritime Bureau (IMB,) with 72 attacks last year – up from 28 in 2014. This year so far it has recorded 30.

Elsewhere piracy is in decline. Between 2014 and 2018 the number of incidents each year in Southeast Asia fell from 141 to 60, and to just three off Somalia, which in 2007-12 faced this century’s worst piracy crisis.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!

If you don’t already have an account but are interested in the service, just click on the button below and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
