    VALLETTA (Reuters) - Three teenage migrants were charged in a Maltese court on Saturday with hijacking a small commercial tanker that had rescued them and others off the coast of Libya.

    The three, who have pleaded not guilty, were among 108 Africans rescued by the El Hiblu 1 tanker this week. They are accused of threatening the crew on Wednesday to try to force the boat to go to Malta and not take them back to Libya.


    Maltese soldiers boarded the tanker without incident and escorted it to the Valletta harbor on Thursday.

    The defendants are 15, 16 and 19 - one of them from Ivory Coast and the other two from Guinea. They pulled the hoods of their jackets over their faces as the were escorted out of court by police on Saturday.

    Could be sons of Obama. Libya must not put up with criminals like that.

    Oh you know, they are just desperate people because they reject any modern day assistance like Americans attempting to help that country when tried, so they killed the Americans basically leaving themselves isolated and struggling to survive in a highly corrupt environment in which was created by their own idiocy in life, and sadly with the help of some idiots here in the USA as well.

    Not sure how igniting a civil war over oil was beneficial in any way, shape or form.

    There you go folks, she finally got around to blaming America. No evidence of that, but you roll with it if it makes you feel better in life.

    Libya was a very stable and wealthy country. With free medical and education for all citizens; men and women.

    Then Sec. of State Hillary working for Obama decided the country needed to be bombed and Gaddafi removed from power.

    Now Libya is a chaotic failed state ruled by warlords. ... :cool:

    Actually, we do have evidence of that. It was a huge factor in why people did not agree with Hillary Clinton's foreign policy. Check yourself, asshat.

    List the evidence in your words specifically, and link the evidence to the culprits in order to help us understand best your assertions.

    Gaddafi's mistake was announcing that he was going to stop taking US dollars and EU currency for his oil, and would only accept gold and silver.

    Basically, the same mistake that Saddam made which lead to Iraq being invaded and his death. ... :cool:
