Kuala Lumpur - Piracy spiked in the first half of 2015 despite no incident being reported off the coast of Somalia, an international watch group said on Wednesday.A total of 134 incidents of piracy and armed robbery against ships were reported from January to June this year, higher than the 116 incidents reported for the same period last year, the International Maritime Bureau (IMB) Reporting Centre said.Most of the piracy incidents occurred in the South-East Asian waters, with 92 incidents reported, the agency said."Pirates managed to board 106 vessels and were responsible for 13 hijackings and 15 attempted attacks worldwide," the IMB said in a statement. "So far in 2015, 250 crew have been taken hostage, 14 assaulted, 10 kidnapped, nine injured and one killed."Somalia used to be a hotbed of piracy. The problem was contained a few years ago after navies from several countries began patrolling Somali waters.
