In this photo released by the Italian Navy and taken on Sunday, a motor boat from the Italian frigate Grecale approaches a boat overcrowded with migrants in the Mediterranean Sea. The bodies of some 30 would-be migrants were found in in the hold of a packed smugglers' boat making its way to Italy, the Italian navy said. The boat was carrying nearly 600 people, and the remaining 566 survivors were rescued by the navy frigate Grecale and were headed to the port at Pozzallo, on the southern tip of Sicily.

The suspected Somali pirates who were arrested early last year as they attempted to hijack a merchandised cargo ship along the Gulf of Aden while armed with dangerous weapons, were each found guilty of a piracy offence. They were each sentenced to serve four and a half years in prison and will be repatriated back to their country on completion of their jail terms.
