The Journal of Commerce looks into the increasing number of international pirate attacks. According to the Office of Naval Intelligence in Washington, pirates are attacking more ships at sea and on the piers. The biggest threat is in Southeast Asia, where about 120 piracy incidents were reported between 1991 and 1995. There has also been an increase of piracy in South America, specifically Brazil.
