An outbreak of piracy occurred in the waters adjoining the coasts of
Hasa and Qatar in 1878 and rapidly attained alarming proportions; many
lives were taken, and many boats and much property were carried off. The
pirates were mostly Bani Hajir of the mainland, and their lawlessness
seemed to be connected in its origin with the Arab rebellion against the
Turks in Hasa. The suppression of the pirates was a matter of difficulty
because the coast of Hasa was now nominally under the Turkish ffag,
and because it was uncertain how far to the southward the territorial
pretensions of the Porte extended or should be admitted. Efforts were
made locally and at Constantinople to stimulate the Turkish authorities
into taking effective action against the pirates j but their feeble endeavours
to respond soon died away without result. In 1878 a number of piratical
vessels were captured by a British man of war off Qatif and handed over
to the Turkish executive officials there; but in 1879, from considerations
of international comity, it was ordered that action by British vessels on the
coast of Hasa should be suspended. The disagreeable state of affairs
which had arisen was thus prolonged, through no fault on the part of the
British political or naval authorities, into the next period.
