- Pirate attacks are increasingly happening farther from the Somali coast. Some 40% of the most recent pirate attacks have happened 300+ miles from the Somali coast.
A few other items of interest:
- Pirate attack success rates this year (23%) is lower than last year (40%). Give a hand to the heightened security measures
- Overall pirate attack rates, however, have increased significantly (UNOSAT says 650% from this time last year, but that doesn't make sense)
