A Kenyan court sentenced 24 Somalis to seven years each in prison on Thursday for attempting to hijack an Iranian merchant vessel, FV Ariya, in the Gulf of Oman in October 2010 .The men, who were arrested by the Dutch navy working under NATO command, were handed over to Kenyan authorities because Somalia, which is struggling to rebuild after two decades of civil war, was not seen as stable enough to try them properly.More than 20 other Somalis were jailed in Kenya last year for similar offences in different trials.
