Since 2009 the annual amount of pirate incidents has crossed 400 ! Only in 2010 there were reported 1270 seafarers who experienced hostage situation. Some of were taken from the board of vessel. ABOUT 40% OF THE VESSELS ARE NOT REPORTED AS HIJACKED Pirates are braver, better armed and more ruthless as never before. Using crews as human shield they negotiate ransoms for months. In the meantime to soften shipowners the torture and even murder the captives with no mercy. Currently the Gulf of Aden and Somali Basin are not the borders for the pirates. They hijack vessels in Omani and even at Indian waters! Recent reports about killed seafarers at the West Coast of Africa indicate that local pirates can kill as well.
