A Yemeni court Tuesday sentenced six Somali pirates to death and jailed six others for 10 years each for hijacking a Yemeni oil tanker and killing two cabin crew in April last year. It was the first verdict of its kind against Somali pirates. The hijackers had forcibly captured the oil tanker Qana after it set sail from Al-Mukalla port in southeast Yemen on April 26, 2009.Duration: 00:29
