KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Pirates attacked 41 commercial vessels worldwide in the first three months of 2007, the lowest figure reported in the past decade, a global seafarers' watchdog said Wednesday.

It was the lowest first-quarter total reported by the IMB since at least 1998. The highest figure was 103 attacks in 2003, according to IMB statistics.
