Piracy off the horn of Africa was caused by those making it impossible for Somali fishermen to make ends meet. Their dumping of toxic waste and over-fishing by trawlers left the local fishermen no option but to turn to piracy or starve. They did not have the means to go in for deep-sea fishing. So we now need a new force to take care of the pirates. -MASOOD HASAN, Lahore, April 29.
