Gunmen attack two cargo ships off Nigeria kill one:(GEO) PORT HARCOURT: Gunmen attacked two cargo vessels off the coast of the oil-producing Niger Delta, killing one crewmember and kidnapping several others, a Nigerian navy spokesman said on Saturday.

The identity of the crewmembers seized near Bonny in southern Rivers state on Friday is not yet known, but the spokesman said they were believed to be from Eastern Europe.

“Gunmen attacked the cargo vessel and one other four nautical miles south of Bonny River,” said navy spokesman Lt. Edward Yeibo. “The gunmen shot one dead and took others hostage.”
