Pirates kidnap some crew from Danish ship in Gulf of Guinea

PIRATES who seized a Danish oil tanker off Congo last week have abandoned the ship and taken some crew members with them, while the rest were found in good health, the ship’s owner said today.

The Monjasa Reformer, which had 16 crew on board when it was boarded by pirates on March 25, was found yesterday by the French navy off the coast of Sao Tome and Principe in the Gulf of Guinea.
