Another tragedy from Philippines, the SuperFerry14 disaster also has the dubious distinction of being the world’s deadliest terrorist attack at sea. On the night of 27th February 2004, an hour after the ship set sail, a bomb, placed in a TV set, ripped through the ship, starting a fire that engulfed the ship. Of the total recorded 744 passengers, 116 were killed. An Islamist terror group, Rajah Sulaiman orchestrated the attack.
