Somali pirates face prosecution in France

A group of six Somalis accused of holding hostage 30 crew members of a French yacht for a week have been flown to Paris where they're facing prosecution for piracy - in what would be the first trial of its kind.

This report from Alasdair Sandford:

The group arrived in France on board a military plane at about six o'clock in the morning local time. They were taken under escort to police headquarters for questioning.

A senior legal source said the Somali president had given his consent for them to be taken out of the country. French commandos captured the group in the Somali desert, allegedly with part of an estimated $2m ransom paid by the yacht owner for the crew's release.

The six suspects face trial for hijacking the vessel and taking hostages to secure a ransom. Police specialising in organised crime are to investigate the case. They're also expected to question the crew members who were flown to Paris earlier this week.
