Nuclear waste dumping leads to development of Somali piracy

Who Are the Real Pirates in Somali Waters?

Islam By  Abdulkarim Mohamed Jimale 3 Dec 09 When will Somali piracy problem come to an end? When will the world really care for Somalia’s unprotected waters, stop the illegal fishing and the dumping of toxic waste? When would the world leave the vast coast of Somalia to Somalis to protect?………..piracy has become the easiest way to make money for the jobless youth, former militiamen and ex-fishermen in the restive country of Somalia. Allegedly, deadly clashes between Islamist rebels and the fragile UN-backed Somali government have forced many jobless youths to join the lucrative scourge………….The key cause of piracy in Somalia’s unprotected waters, are the foreign ships that have looted seafood, dumped toxic waste, and have destroyed the boats of fishermen……….Muhammed Jama’a a resident of Harardere district, North of Somalis capital Mogadishu told IOL in a telephone interview.

“Since 1991, foreign vessels have been dumping toxic and nuclear waste in our waters, and have destroyed an unknown number of our marine resources.”…………
