Pirates off Guyana are back


Reported here:
A band of armed, masked pirates on Thursday morning raided five Guyanese fishing vessels off the Corentyne coast, stripping them of their engines and other equipment before ferrying the fisher folk to Suriname where they were deposited to find their way back home.

The victims believe that the pirates are Surinamese who have joined with Guyanese to torment fishermen. Back in July, operating in similar fashion, pirates attacked over 12 fishing vessels, stripping them of engines and other equipment before beating the occupants and leaving them stranded in the deep sea.
