Somali pirates have attacked 640 ships and taken over 3,150 hostages since 2007. A few U.S.-flagged vessels have been affected -- most recently the SV Quest, a private yacht on which four Amer. were killed in Feb. 2011. The growing frequency and severity of attacks renew the urgency to address the piracy threat. As Somalia is unable to repress piracy, the NSC developed the Countering Piracy off the Horn of Africa: Action Plan in Dec. 2008 to prevent, disrupt, and prosecute piracy in collaboration with international and industry partners. In Sept. 2010, a report evaluated the extent to which U.S. agencies: (1) have implemented the plan, and the challenges they face; and (2) have collaborated with partners. This is a print on demand report.
