Israel jailed the crew of the Palestinian arms-smuggling ship Karine-A. The Erez Military Court on Monday sentenced the captain to 25 years in prison for arms trafficking, and two other Palestinian crewmen to 17 years each. Israeli commandos seized the Karine-A in January 2002 in the Red Sea, while it was en route to deliver 50 tons of military ordnance to terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip.
