Sharp drop in Somali pirate attacks

Authorities manage to lower number of pirate attacks with very little help from outside Somalia.

    Piracy attacks in Somalia have fallen to their lowest level in seven years. Up until October there had only been 10 attacks compared with 70 in the same period last year. 

    And the authorities are combating piracy with very little help from outside.
