Rome convicts 11 Somalis of piracy

Eleven Somali men who attacked an Italian oil tanker in January were each jailed for three and a half years yesterday after a Rome court convicted them of piracy and attempted kidnapping.

The group opened fire from a boat, attacking the tanker Valdarno about 250 nautical miles off the coast of Yemen, Italy’s defence ministry said.
