Norwegian Shipping institute arm guards on their ships
Saturday, 15 January 2011
The Norwegian shipping company Stolt Nielsen has begun to have armed guards on board their vessels in waters off Africa.
Several other companies are considering doing likewise. CEO Niels Stolt Nielsen says that they have no alternative - "the only language terrorists understand is the warning shot."
There are three or four guards on each ship.
Up to twelve of its vessels run every month through the exposed areas of the east coast of Africa which is swapped with terrorists and pirates.
