"Phantom ships," using fake documentation, are hijacking cargoes from ports across East Asia in the latest twist on piracy in the region, maritime officials said Wednesday. "It is a problem which has accelerated," said Eric Ellen, executive director of the Commercial Crime Services Division of the Britain-based International Chamber of Commerce. At least $200 million worth of cargo is being hijacked every year by these phantom ships, Ellen told reporters after a two-day conference on piracy.
