A Yemeni court handed down jail sentences of between one and 10 years each to nine Yemenis on Tuesday for their involvement in the smuggling of weapons aboard a ship, judicial sources said.
Yemeni forces intercepted the Jihan 1 off Yemen's coast in January. U.S. and Yemeni officials said it was carrying a large cache of weapons, including surface-to-air missiles, being smuggled from Iran to Yemen.
The sources said one of those tried was sentenced in absentia.
