Nigeria: Greek crew held hostage after kidnapping off West Africa
Greek authorities say negotiations are underway to free three sailors kidnapped off the Nigerian coast. Analysts warn there has been a “sharp increase” in incidents in the Gulf of Guinea.
The owner of a fuel tanker is in talks to secure the release of three Greek sailors who were abducted by pirates off the coast of West Africa, the Greek government said Sunday. The crew of the Togo-flagged vessel Stelios K was attacked in the Gulf of Guinea on November 16.
