ABSTRACT
The article cites the striked of new pirates in the African ocean in 2008. It cites that in early October, they had seized 12 cargo ships off the coast of Somalia and were holding their crews of about 250 sailors, in all for ransom. A director of the Danish group Risk Intelligence which monitors piracy on the high seas said that pirates are not interested in killing seafarers indiscriminately, but on ransoms because they viewed that piracy is a business.
