but look hard a lot of attention a few years ago compared to us up to now has really dropped down on southeast asia as against them a letter and since last africa has really hit the headlines most recently with the attacks but it's been an ongoing problem for a long time this year alone we seen 52 major attacks on brussels in the region where the 125 c. 4 was kidnapped not just since the beginning of 2090 or now the 66 attacks last year with 155 at night so it's it's a real issue the moment you see attacks increasing what is giving rise to these attacks. the main causes for as are really the problems that are in the niger delta in nigeria and we're in the world we have 3 main things which are effectively an environment to operate from which is unlike the delta as an area that has a very very loose rule of law there's very little opportunity for those living. in

12:25 am
improved things and has helped with the particular instance however ultimately it comes down to nigeria and how they're going to solve the problem in the niger delta it's a long time issue and in the meantime here it's really up to local navies and also the shipping industry to improve security in their own critters never waters and uncle to ship so the sea for us ok max williams c.e.o. at africa risk compliance thank you thank you. now in uganda. people have been killed in. regions from east uganda. to west uganda in the mountainous region the idea. the we. will be safe from the risk of sliding much. more i'm joined by.
