Several people have posted comments on the Amver Facebook page about the increase in piracy. Many people want to know if there has been an increase in pirate attacks, if Somalia has been a hotbed of piracy, or what can be done to prevent some of the attacks.
Peter Mello recently posted a great piracy follow up piece on his blog Sea Fever. Head over to his blog to read about piracy as it was a year ago. Peter has some great links and topics including how, at the time, the United Kingdom was providing asylum to pirates. Perhaps that sentiment has changed. If you like his blog, consider listening to his podcast, Messing About In Ships, which he co-hosts with gCaptain.
