Somali sea hijack is a warning signal

The hijacking of the Aris 13 tanker by Somali pirates last week was a warning signal – it reiterates the importance of maintaining international counter-piracy efforts while also building the capacity of western Indian Ocean states to manage and develop their own maritime security needs. SAFE SEAS published a commentary on the incident with The Conversation which is available here. The commentary was also widely re-published, including by Huffington Post, allafrica.com, Somaliland Press, and piracy-studies.org.
