Asian sea piracy information centre to be established Singapore: A 24-hour centre dedicated to sharing information about pirate attacks around Asia is expected to be established here by December, media reports said Friday.

The facility will act as a nexus for 16 countries including India, China and Japan in their bid to stamp out piracy.

It is hoped that the centre's work will help persuade Lloyd's of London to take the Malacca Strait off its list of war-risk areas, Singapore's Transport Minister Yeo Cheow Tong told The Straits Times.
