Asian pirates now want electronics, cash | The Jakarta Post

Pirates targeting ships near Malaysian waters are now robbing crewmen of their money, handphones, laptops and personal belongings, said the Malaysia Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA).

MMEA command, control, communication and information director Captain Maritime Hamid Haji Mohd Nor said the incidents in the Indo­nesian waters involved mostly sea robberies against passing merchant ships.

But he warned that the problem had to be carefully addressed to prevent it from escalating into a more dangerous scenario as in the case of the Somalia sea robbers.
