Gunmen attack tanker off Nigeria, kidnap Romanian

Gunmen in speedboats attacked a tanker loaded with 4,000 tonnes of diesel off the coast of Nigeria on Wednesday, kidnapping a Romanian crew member and badly damaging the vessel's superstructure, security sources said.

Three private security sources said the MT Meredith was attacked at the Bonny Fairway Buoy off the oil- producing Niger Delta, a route regularly used by oil services vessels. The tanker was believed to be travelling from Lagos to the main oil city of Port Harcourt.
