West African pirates kidnap French oilmen


The “Bourbon Sagitta” was stormed overnight as it took part in an operation to load crude oil onto a tanker in the Gulf of Guinea, near Cameroon’s maritime frontier with Nigeria, the shipping firm Bourbon told AFP in Marseille.

“Armed individuals aboard two ‘flying boats’ boarded the ship and took 10 of the 15 members of the crew,” a spokesman said, using the term employed in west Africa for the fast fibreglass skiffs typically used by pirate gangs.
