2 Somali pirates admit for their crime in Japan

By Piracy

Two men from Somalia made an attempt to hijack a Japanese-operated tanker off the coast of Oman and pleaded guilty in Japanese court 2 days ago.
2 years ago in March US Navy arrested 4 people trying to attack a tanker equipped with submachine guns.
There was a trial and 2 (Mohamed Urgus Adeysey and Abdinur Hussein Ali) of them admitted that they are from Somalia but they said that did not know their exact age. Japan has a new anti-piracy law and the 2 Somali pirates are the first to be accused under it.
The 2 men will hear the court's formal verdict on February 1st.
The two other arrested pirates will go through a different trial process because they are believed to be juveniles under Japanese law.
