Piraterij teistert West-Afrikaanse wateren

July 2, 2019 - De West-Afrikaanse Golf van Guinee is, volgens het International Maritime Bureau, de meest door piraten geteisterde zee ter wereld met 72 aanvallen in 2018 – in 2014 waren het er 28 – en dit jaar al 30 geregistreerde overvallen

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.
