ANKARA (Reuters) - Ten Turkish sailors were taken hostage by armed pirates off the coast of Nigeria early on Tuesday, shipping company Kadioglu Denizcilik said, adding that another eight sailors were safely aboard the ship.
Kadioglu said its Turkish-flagged Paksoy-1 cargo ship was attacked in the Gulf of Guinea as it sailed from Cameroon to the Ivory Coast without freight. It gave no further details.
