Plan to thwart pirates


TAIPEI: Taiwan may place armed guards on board local ships that sail in pirate-infested waters, especially off Somalia. However, details had not been finalised, an official at the Transporta­tion Ministry said yesterday. The measures would not be implemente­d until the law governing guns and firearms that bars armed guards on board local vessels is amended.
