Tuesday, January 15, 2013
MOGADISHU, Somalia, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Somali pirates serving sentences in Kenyan jails will be transferred to Somalia, a Somali diplomat said Tuesday.
Somali Ambassador to Kenya Mohamed Ali Ameriko told Shabelle Media Network that the transfer plan has been requested by his country.
Most of the pirates were seized by foreign forces who are fighting piracy in Somali waters off the African coast.
Ameriko did not indicate the number of Somali pirates being held in Kenyan jails but said most were serving sentences at a maximum security facility in Mombasa.
A date for the transfer was not announced.
