ABSTRACT
This section recounts some of the piracy attacks in 2008 and in 2009. It was in August 18, 2008 when Somali pirates took hostage of the Bunga Melati Dua 5 oil tanker in Malaysia and asked for 4.7 million U.S. dollars for the release of the ship and its sister ship Bunga Melati Dua. The Turkish tanker Karagol was hijacked in Yemen on November 12, 2008. On April 4, 2009, pirates have seized the German vessel Hansa Stavanger which owners paid for a 2.7 million U.S. dollars ransom.
