High Seas Crime: World's Most Pirate-Infested Waters

Vietnam – 8 Attacks

The container vessel SYMH Huashan, from Antigua and Barbuda, was boarded by seven pirates armed with knives who came alongside from a wooden boat on April 1. They overcame crewmembers and stole cargo from the vessel. An official Vietnamese watchman onboard took no action to stop the pirates, and no action was taken by local police subsequent to the attack, IMB says.
