In recent months, acts of piracy have increased dramatically in Southeast Asia, particularly in the Straits of Malacca, a corridor at the crossroads of Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, in the Singapore Strait and in South China Sea. By the early 2000s, various coastal states of the region have joined forces to try to reduce the problem by strengthening their security but pirates seem ready to go on the offensive. Since the beginning of 2014, 34 attacks or attempted attacks have been identified in the region. One of the latest incidents to date concerns a Thai tanker, the MT Orapin, which was attacked on the island of Bintan: communications equipment were destroyed, and the oil was siphoned off.
