A question about International laws.

we got this email question and information and want to forward it, in case someone has an answer:

Two indian Fishermen have been killed a few days ago by Italian security forces on an italian ship. The indian government wants to bring them in front of the court. The italian authorities say, that this is not possible according to international law, because the fishermen were killed in international water. How comes then, that the  Somalis are being judged here. It would be very nice to find out what international law says here.
