Poland’s Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski said on Friday that a Polish cargo ship under the Cyprus flag was attacked off the coast of Nigeria by pirates, who kidnapped five members of the crew, including the captain and officers.

“The rest of the crew, 11 people, are still on the ship and they are safe . . . The ship suffered some damages,” Waszczykowski told a news conference.

The ship is currently anchored around 30 sea miles off the Nigerian coast. Kidnappers have not made any demands yet. (Reuters)
