ADEN: An appeals court in the southern port of Aden upheld a 10-year jail term on Sunday for 11 Somali pirates convicted of trying to hijack a ship in Yemeni waters. The group were convicted by a lower court in 2010 of hijacking a “foreign ship” in February 2009, using AK-47 assault rifles, rocket-propelled grenades and a ladder of the type used by pirates to board vessels.
