"Descienden un 5% los ataques piratas" (04/11/2014)

Según la International Maritime Bureau (IMB) los ataques piratas en los primeros nueve meses del año han experimentado un descenso del 5%, respecto al mismo periodo del año anterior, aunque también dichas fuentes están preocupados porque en el tercer trimestre del año han aumentado los secuestros de pequeños buques cisterna en la zona del sudeste asiático.

 

Respresentantes de la citada organización también destacan que estos buques cisternas para los piratas son un «premio», ya que en poco tiempo secuestran a la tripulación mientras descargan el cargamento que llevan a bordo para luego venderlo. Durante estos nueve meses los piratas mataron a 3 personas, raptaron a 5 y 369 fueron secuestradas. También en este periodo de tiempo fueron 17 buques secuestrados, 124 fueron abordados y 10 objeto de disparos. También hubo 27 tentativas de ataque. En sólo el último trimestre, julio, agosto y septiembre, se han totalizado un total de 62 buques atacados por los piratas, mientras que en el 2013 fueron 50.

Aproximadamente la mitad de los ataques piratas denunciados en el mundo tienen lugar o en la costa de Somalia (Este) o en el Golfo de Guinea (Oeste). Sin embargo, la primera, en el Cuerno de África, vive un declive que coexiste en estos momentos con el alza del asalto al mercante o petrolero de turno en las aguas nigerianas.
