Panic Rooms on ships

Due by the increase of pirate attacks merchant ships and private yachts are equipped with reinforced panic rooms. This is to prevent that crew members and passengers are taken as hostages for the purpose of ransom extortion. Panic rooms shuould be equipped with appropriate communication equipment such as radio or satellite phone as well as with technical facilities to stop the engines or even assure the steering of the vessel. This way for example on October 23 2010 the crew of the heavy-lift cargo ship Beluga cruising the Indian Ocean was able to secure themselfs in the panic room. The attacking pirates left the ship unsuccessfully after they could not take hostages and a British frigate approached.
