The number of Somali pirates who have been arrested and held in custody has reached 750 according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime or UNODC.  Maritime and crime experts are meeting in London to discuss how to step up the fight against the increasing number of attacks on ships by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. It’s estimated that piracy costs the shipping industry around $7 billion a year. Alan Cole is from UNODC. Daniel Dickinson asked him what the international community planned to do next.
