Anchorage Incidents: Alexandria, Port Said and Suez in Egypt

 
October 5th 2015
Each month, we dig out data for a different port or anchorage to look for patterns of crime.


This month is focused on Alexandria, Port Said and Suez in Egypt.


It is worth remembering that 30% of maritime crime globally goes unreported, rising to 50% in the WAF region, according to the International Maritime Bureau (IMB). 
 




Location


 
Attacks all recorded at anchor or berth with exception of 1 rocket attack off-shore.
 

Timing


Incidents occur primarily at night or early hours of the morning.


Violence


Majority of incidents are non-violent.


1 incident involved extreme violence and possible death


Vessel types


60% of reported attacks involved container ships


No reports advised in Alexandria, Port Said or Suez since 2013. Government security is present in all major installations, especially in regions surrounding the new Suez Extension which has acted as a deterrent.


Overview


Security has increased dramatically since 2013 with resulting reduction in reported maritime crime.
