Another get 33 years Jail term

Two Somali Pirates have been sentenced to life in prison, and a third has received 33 years because he cooperated with prosecutors in a separate piracy case.

The US District Judge Raymond Jackson issued the life sentences Monday after a Federal Appeals Court in Virginia ruled last year that he erred when he sentenced the five men convicted in the case to terms ranging from 30 to 42 years.

In 2010, Pirates attacked a US Navy Ship that they mistook for a cargo vessel in the Gulf of Aden. Sailors fired back, killing one pirate.

The rest were captured.
