"Three Britons accused of smuggling more than £2m into Somalia to secure the release of two hijacked ships have been jailed for between 10 and 15 years and fined thousands of pounds. Matthew Brown, a pilot, and Andrew Oaks and Alex James from Nairobi-based security firm Salama Fikira, were among six foreigners arrested after landing in two unmarked planes at Mogadishu airport last month."
