Arabic
abstract noun meaning "strength", "authority", "rulership", derived from the verbal noun سلطة sulṭah, meaning "authority" or "power".

Piracy
Piracy
off the coast of Somalia

has been a threat to international shipping since the second phase of the Somali Civil War, around 2000, when foreign ships exploited the absence of an effective national coast guard by invading the fishing grounds and also dumping illegal waste that would further diminish the local catch.

International organisations began to express concern over the new piracy due to its high cost to global trade and the incentive to profiteer by insurance companies and others
