Graphic showing details of pirate attacks of Somalia. Note the huge spike in attacks in 2008.

Yup. Somali pirates are back in the news. After a brief hiatus (and an appearance on South Park), the Guardian reports on an intriguing development. Apparently, a “European military intelligence document” obtained by a Spanish radio station relates how “Somali pirates attacking shipping in the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean are directed to their targets by a “consultant” team in London.”
