or A French court is prosecuting six Somali men accused of holding a French couple hostage on their boat. The trial begins in Paris today. Experienced sailors Jean-Yves and Bernadette Delanne were en route from Australia to France when the suspected pirates boarded their vessel in September 2008 demanding a ransom of one million US dollars. The lawyer representing one of the accused, Aurélie Cerceau, claimed some people are forced into hijacking boats.
