56. OK, Pollyanna. You wanna link? I'll give you a link.
Sarkozy said he intends to bring the six pirates now held on a French frigate to France. But he also left open the possibility that Somalia could keep them, if "we are certain that these pirates will be tried, sentenced and will serve out their punishments.

What happens to pirates after they are arrested? In Somalia, seven of them face the death penalty, though the punishment would be a first in the region in which they are held, Puntland, according to one report flagged by EagleSpeak.

In France, where six others are held, a lighter sentence can be expected. Capital punishment was abolished there in 1981, and authorities have refused to turn over suspects without guarantees that they would not be executed.

What, you need a link for every frigging sentence now? Even the obvious stuff, like France's well-established view on the DP? Whatever. Google's your friend, too.
