US judge gives Somali pirate 12 life sentences

Published: 08.13.12, 23:05 / Israel News

A US judge has ordered a Somali pirate to serve a dozen life sentences in prison for his role as a hostage negotiator in the hijacking of a German merchant vessel and a US yacht.

 

The four Americans aboard the yacht were shot to death by pirates. The crew on the other vessel was tortured to get a higher ransom. Mohammad Saaili Shibin was convicted earlier this year of the 15 charges he faced, including piracy, kidnapping and hostage-taking. Shibin's attorney says he will appeal. (AP)
