Lack of Security

Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, Spokesman of the African Union Mission in Somalia has been speaking on piracy.

He feels that while state failure in Somalia provides pirates with an opportunity to operate relatively freely, the lack of effective security at sea gives them the opportunity to attack ships at relatively little risk.

Somali piracy is consequently the most substantial threat to the freedom of global maritime trade.
