 Ship Bunga Mas 5 is owned by the Navy will follow the mission of moving people of malaysian out of Egypt is a ship captured by Somali pirates, led by Commander Nazri Sharif, in the ship of the Navy's elite team of Pascal

Pascal Wreck prompt terrorist attacks Gulf of Aden Like a movie full of action, act of violence that was feared by Somali pirates in Gulf of Aden for a browser is because boldness is willing to kill if their demands are not met, eventually losing in the hands of the people of Malaysia. This is due to the swift action of Marine Special Force (Pascal) Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN), which freed a Malaysian tanker with 23 crew members, not until two hours after it was hijacked by Somali pirates in Gulf of Aden, about 300 nautical miles to the east Oman, on Thursday. In the incident at 11:40 pm (local time), the MT Bunga hired Laurel Malaysia International Shipping Corporation Bhd (MISC) on the way to send loads of lubricants and chemicals from West Asia to Singapore, but attacked a group of men armed with AK-47 machine guns and pistols boarded a speedboat.
Thus, Somalia again dominated the headlines of international media, and as before, it is still on the wrong factors. However, the success of Malaysia intercept Somalia piracy that does not guarantee similar incidents do not recur in the future.
However, the image of the alleged Somali pirates to earn hundreds of millions of annual revenue paid ransom the ship owner, was severely affected because they now had to bow to the agility and efficiency of Pascal, who arrived just in time to rescue the vessel MT Bunga Laurel.
Naval commandos on the ship Bunga Mas 5, headed by Commander Pete Sharif, also managed to apprehend seven pirates involved in the attack. The efficiency of the commandos escaped MISC from the loss of the cargo is estimated to be worth RM30 million and rescue 23 Filipino crew.
Rail lines trace the existence of piracy in the waters that gave the story most of them were fighters to the many groups that each warring for control of the country since the fall of Siad Barre government in 1991.
"Their goal is easy - survive," said Somalia expert at the University of South Africa in Pretoria, Iqbal Jhazbhay.
"Based on existing evidence, they are fighters who saw the chance to be a predator. They did a 'restriction to collect taxes "and now find that opportunity in the open ocean area.
"At first, the main goal of terrorism at sea are working with fishermen and then, buy boats and guns with the profits earned from each of the captured ship, is merely a living," he said, adding that their activities more frequently because of higher prices food.
However, the report of the United Nations (UN) and several new sources mention of piracy in Somalia due to illegal fishing and toxic waste dumping in our waters by foreign vessels through it.
It hinder the ability of local people earn a living and forced them to become pirates. In fact, one report states 70 percent of the communities that live on the coast of supporting piracy as a form of defense to the country's territorial waters. Pirates believed they were protecting fishing areas and to uphold justice and compensation from the confiscated proceeds marine.
In fact, there is also evidence that the residents in Kenya, Somalia, Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf may provide information to the pirates on the ship that docked in the region who may be heading to the Gulf of Aden and the area to be a pirate's nest.
Looking at the physical form, there are wondering how Somali pirates seized the ship is so efficient that pass through their territory? The answer is simple - practice and keep practicing, according to senior analyst at the Institute for Security Studies in Pretoria, Richard Cornwell.
More than 90 ships attacked off coast of Somalia last year and 17 of them still remain in captivity. One of these is the tanker owned by Saudi Arabia.
"The attack was carried out 400 nautical miles at sea. It is far to the center of what we see before. Using a carrier, usually made obsolete tugboats Russia, to sail out to sea in order to find the target, then use a smaller boat to sail more closely and take over the ship, climbing using ropes and ladders, and machine guns.
"It is easy to enter the tanker from the smaller boat. Therefore, the tanker often become targets, "he said.
Somalia piracy were felt at the international level and in many ways made to solve the problem, including providing escort ships. Recently, NATO allies, the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet Company, and several other countries to send ships patrolling the waters off Somalia and the Gulf of Aden in an area of 1.1 million square kilometers, to prevent piracy.
On 18 November, an Indian warship pirates holding the ship sank in the waters of Yemen after pirates fired at them.
However, based on the size and number of vessels that flow through Somalia from the Suez Canal, the navy patrol ship safety is not guaranteed. "Unless there is a warship in the area, and most importantly, a helicopter, there is no chance to stop piracy

Mission to help the people of Malaysia in Egypt

Govt may use navy ship to evacuate M’sians in Egypt

LABIS: The government is mulling over using the navy’s auxiliary ship currently deployed in the Gulf of Aden to assist the evacuation of Malaysian students from troubled Egypt.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the ship would take the students from Egypt to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to enable them to take flights to Malaysia.
“We do have plans to utilise the assets of the armed forces, including the navy ship currently deployed at the Gulf of Aden, to take them out of Egypt,” he told reporters after visiting the flood victims at Kampung Ayer Panas here yesterday.
Najib was asked to comment on the concerns raised by the families of Malaysians in Egypt following the widespread unrest in major Egyptian cities, with demonstrators calling for an end to President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule.
The navy’s auxiliary ship currently involved in anti-piracy operation in the Gulf of Aden is KD Bunga Mas.
There are about 10,000 Malaysian students in Egypt.
The prime minister said the government had sent officers to the country to assess the situation and ensure the Malaysians are safe.
On the possibility of using the C-130 transport aircraft, he said, it was not practical because it could only take 40 passengers.
“We are also not sure of the availability of ground-handling crew at the airports there,” he said.
Present were his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor as well as Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman and Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Najib said the government understood the concern raised by the families of the Malaysian students but said that the government cannot act in a hasty manner.
