Somali pirates on trial for seizing French yacht | News , Middle East | THE DAILY STAR

RENNES, France: Three Somali pirates went on trial Monday for hijacking a yacht in 2009, which prompted a rescue operation by the French special services in which the skipper died.

French troops stormed the Tanit sailboat on April 10, 2009 and captured the trio in a bid to free Florent Lemacon, his wife, their three-year-old son and two others.

Florent Lemacon died in the operation.

The pirates are now aged between 27 and 31.
