ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the hijacking threats posed by Somali pirates in the ocean, off the coast of Somalia and the efforts of the international community to curb them. It is reported that the military patrols have become ineffective as threats are continuously surging. In 2008, there were 38 percent incidents of piracy in Somalia alone, according to figures provided by the International Maritime Bureau. The European Union has launched a naval task force in December 2008 with a year-long mandate.
