deadly fight between somali pirates and ship's private security guards

Piracy is so simple that anyone can do it. All you need is a gun, an aluminum ladder  and a motorboat. Then you just have to wait for commercial ships to pass by. Best of all, you don't have to worry about your targets shooting back. By international agreement, civilian vessels aren't allowed to carry guns because governments don't want armed ships moving from port to port

According to some estimates, pirates in 2008 pulled in as much as $150 million, indicating that piracy is now Somalia's biggest industry. In fact, successful pirates are the country's most eligible bachelors.

Most of the somalian bachelors who are left with out any job are being forced to turn in to a pirate .
these pirates will rob the ships and gather a huge amount of money.
Many pirates after gathering huge money they are buying properties on the seashore of Mombasa and Kenya.
The places where pirates operate are actually lawless. In Somali territory, there's no functional government to make or enforce regulations. And because nations don't control much of the ocean, there are no laws on the high seas.
So the ships are maintaining their privtae force in order to protect their ships from the pirates.
