ABSTRACT
The article reports on the increase in maritime hijacking in 2008. The ICC International Maritime Bureau (IMB) Piracy Reporting Centre (PRC) has recorded a total of 293 incidents for piracy against ships, up more than 11 percent in 2007. The increase was credited to the number of attacks in the Gulf of Aden and on the east coast of Somalia.
