Pirates off the coast of Nigeria have reportedly taken control of an oil products tanker with about 25 crew members on board, part of a new wave of increasingly sophisticated attacks in the Gulf of Guinea, according to a Dow Jones Report.
The report quoted a manager of the International Maritime Bureau, who said that the attack is the seventh in Nigeria this year. According to reports, the ship owner said he hadn't heard from anyone on board.
The Niger Delta region has seen a return of piracy in recent months, despite most militants in the region accepting a presidential amnesty in late 2009.
