Long Sentence

A Spanish court has sentenced two Somali pirates to 439 years in jail each for their role in the hijacking of a tuna fishing boat.

The two men have been detained in a Madrid jail since they were caught after the attack in late 2009.

The court said government-linked bodies had paid to have the vessel freed, but the government has insisted it does not pay ransoms.

The vessel and 36 crew members were held off Somalia for 47 days.
