A ship of the Nigerian navy, one of three ships taking part in a joint counter-piracy patrol by the Nigerian and Benin navies, patrols the sea off the coast of Contonou on September 28, 2011. Benin and Nigeria launched joint sea patrols Wednesday to tackle a surge in piracy that has raised alarm in the shipping industry, with attacks seeing crews held hostage and fuel stolen.
