More piracy near Somalia.
Pirates have seized two vessels - a Japanese tanker and an Iranian bulk carrier - off the coast of Somalia.....
The hijackings come just two days after a Malaysian oil tanker with 39 crew was captured in the same area.
Including Thursday's attacks, six vessels have now been seized in this zone since 20 July.
It's getting a bit silly. If I ran a shipping company, I'd be looking for some answers.
I think it's time to revive the old Q-ship - a heavily armed ship that looks like a normal freighter - to take on a few of these pirates. Once the potential price for taking a ship gets too high, they'll back off.
