Pentagon Secretary speaks
The United States, which also has warships patrolling off Somalia to protect commercial ship, said a military approach was not the answer to a surge of piracy off the Horn of Africa.

Pentagon Secretary says: "The navies are not going to solve the problem"

The United States, which also has warships patrolling off Somalia to protect commercial ship, said a military approach was not the answer to a surge of piracy off the Horn of Africa.

"You could have all the navies in the world having all their ships out there, you know, it's not going to ever solve this problem," said Pentagon press secretary Geoff Morrell and he continued: "It requires a holistic approach from the international community at sea, ashore, with governance, with economic development".

At least 18 ships are currently being held for ransom by Somali pirates, along with 330 mariners taken hostage. This year there have been 95 attempted ship seizures by pirates in the Gulf of Aden, 39 of them were successful.
