(SOURCE) Pirates have attacked an oil tanker off the coast of Nigeria and kidnapped two men, a Greek coast guard official said.
Ten pirates boarded the 18-crew ship, the 6,500 tonne Marshall Islands-flaggged MT ALTHE, and took its Ukrainian captain and Greek first engineer hostage late on Monday.
The attack took place 35 nautical miles off the oil-producing Niger Delta coastline, a Nigerian security source said.
