Torture? Execution? German Justice Through the Eyes of a Somali Pirate

A courtroom in Hamburg is the scene of a head-on collision between two worlds as the German justice system tries 10 Somali pirates who hijacked a cargo ship. The pirates, some of whom are under 18, had no idea what a court or a trial was and were afraid they would be tortured -- or executed -- by the judge.
Translated from the German by Christopher Sultan
