Pirates kidnap foreigners off Nigerian coast

A ship that services an oil company was attacked by pirates near the Niger Delta. Two security men were killed and four expatriates were kidnapped, a Malaysian, Iranian, Thai and Indonesian.

Although security in the Delta area has improved recently, travellers should still be aware that the security situation remains volatile. Organised crime and local political rivalries may result in violent confrontations.
