There was an overall drop in actual piracy and armed robbery incidents against ships in Asia during January-March 2017, while the number of attempts increased, according to the latest report from Asian piracy watchdog ReCAAP ISC.

From January to March, a total of 20 incidents occurred – 18 armed robbery and 5 piracy incidents.

Out of these, 15 actual incidents were reported, representing a drop of 12% compared to January-March 2016.

“Increase in the number of attempted incidents is an indication of successful efforts by crews to deter boarding by perpetrators,” ReCAAP said.
