Russian sailors still missing in Nigeria

Three crewmen who have been taken hostage by pirates off the west coast of Africa are safe but their location remains unknown, Russia’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

A Romanian and two Russians were captured when pirates boarded the Esther C British cargo ship in the Gulf of Guinea.

Diplomats are making every effort to free the captured sailors.
