Caught Red-Handed First Trial of Somali Pirates Poses Headache for Germany

Somali pirates are about to face trial in Germany for the first time since the EU launched its operation against piracy off the Somali coast in 2008. It's a clear-cut case -- the 10 men were caught red-handed. But it poses a legal and diplomatic headache for the German authorities. Will this be the first trial of many?
