ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the ordeal of Maersk Alabama Captain Richard Phillips, who was hostaged by Somali pirates in April 2009, and offers advice from Phillips on fighting piracy. He stresses the need for better security aboard ships that pass through the waters off the Horn of Africa which is known for being pirate infested. Industry experts raised the concern that arming merchant vessels would escalate the potential for violence. Phillips proposes that ships have safe rooms with communications, self-power, food, water and self-ventilation. INSET: PIRATES AGAIN ATTACK MAERSK ALABAMA.
