Monsoon season's end risks increase of Indian Ocean piracy, warns IMB
THE easing off of the Indian Ocean's monsoon season will likely see a rise in pirate activity for those vessels transiting the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Aden.

The ICC International Maritime Bureau (IMB) urges vessels transiting the area to remain alert to potential targets by pirates, who are no longer hampered by rough seas and strong winds.

Pirate activity off the coast of Somalia has fallen to as little as 10 attacks within the year so far due to the presence of naval vessels and armed security contractors aboard ship.

Anti-piracy measures are also supported by the Somali government in Mogadishu which has set a stabilising influence during the last 12 months of power, said the IMB
