Piracy is still rife in most of the world's oceans. This paper explores the nature and extent of piracy. It provides an overview of the attacks on ships worldwide, focusing on Africa. Reported attacks on ships in South Africa's territorial waters are analysed and conclusions relating to these reported attacks are reached. Furthermore, the nature of policing in a maritime environment is discussed. International law and treaties or conventions pertinent to the policing of piracy and armed robbery against ships are also discussed and analysed.
