In a case that dramatized Europe's illegal immigration crisis, a Dutch court convicted seven men Friday in the deaths of 58 Chinese migrants who suffocated in a truck container while seeking a better life in Britain. The seven were given prison terms of up to nine years each--less than half the punishment demanded by prosecutors. They were acquitted of manslaughter by the three-judge panel, which ruled that the defendants never intended to kill the migrants.
