"Federal prosecutors have asked a judge in New York City to sentence a Somali pirate to nearly 34 years in prison for an attack on a U.S.-flagged ship off the coast of Africa. Prosecutors said in a court filing Thursday that Abdiwali Abdigadir Muse led attacks on ships in the Indian Ocean for more than a month in 2009. They say he threatened to chop up one seaman and terrorized others at gunpoint." (02/10/11)
