Due to the numerous incidents in which Somali pirates have hijacked passenger and commercial ships, the UN was set to discuss the establishment of courts for pirates, Israel Radio reported Thursday.

The UN Security Council has accepted a Russian proposal to define piracy as a felony in all UN-member countries, in an attempt to eliminate the problem.
