ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Somali piracy in the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean. It states that Somali pirates continue to intimidate shipping crews and hijack ships despite international naval operations off the Horn of Africa. Shipping companies follow practices to avoid pirate attacks in the region including joining convoys and following evasive routes. The International Maritime Bureau said Somali pirates hijacked 32 vessels in the first nine months of 2009.
