Pirates Sentenced

Two Somali pirates who hijacked a South African yacht off the coast of Tanzania last November were sentenced to up to seven years in prison by a Dutch court.

Tried under a law which gives the Netherlands international jurisdiction over piracy, the two hijackers and three other Somalis were also convicted of piracy.

The pirates, all in their early 20s, were heavily armed when captured.
