Play associated audio

In recent months there's been an awareness of the problem of sea piracy. Now a local high school is planning a training conference on the issue.

Marshall High School in the Falls Church area is offering a one day training conference on piracy on the seas. The angle will be recent efforts by NATO, the European Union and Russia to protect ships around the Horn of Africa. The school is hosting the event along with the University of Virginia and the United Nations Information Centre. Registration for students in the region is now open for the conference, which is set for late next month. For more information go to the Fairfax County Web site.
