Source: Christian Science Monitor "The US Supreme Court on Tuesday let stand a series of lower-court opinions endorsing a broad view of what constitutes the crime of piracy -- a move that will make it significantly easier for the government to prosecute and convict suspected Somali pirates in federal court. The high court turned aside an appeal by five Somali nationals convicted of firing shots from a small skiff at a US
Navy frigate on patrol 600 miles off the coast of Somalia on April 1, 2010. The warship, the USS Nicholas, returned fire and sank the boat. Three men were taken prisoner. Two others were captured on another small boat nearby." (01/22/13)
