A mixed bag this week, but we
begin with good news. The four crew kidnapped from the ST Sierra Leyre have
been released in Nigeria. There is no confirmation of whether a ransom was
paid, but the business model there would suggest it"s highly likely.
Piracy in the region has made the headlines several times this week, with a
spate of attacks on passenger boats in Delta waterways. The incidents included
one where a pregnant woman was shot in the stomach.
In the Indian Ocean Region, a group of 14 fishermen, abducted in the
Sundabarns, Bangladesh, were freed by the authorities. Maritime crime is a
problem in the region but rarely discussed.
The Combined Maritime Forces have had another busy week, notching up a series
of massive drug seizures and sticking it to organised crime in the
Iran, meanwhile, doesn"t want you to forget its still there. They began the
week with a senior naval official making the somewhat bizarre claim that the US
Navy was impotent against them. Wouldn"t want to push that idea too far.
In other news, another batch of Somalis convicted of piracy have been returned
to the country by the Indian authorities. The question now is, what will they
