Pirates suspected to have attacked tanker off Angola

“A fuel tanker is suspected to have been hijacked by pirates off the coast of Angola, the ship’s owners said on Wednesday, in what would be the most southerly attack to date by pirates off West Africa. Pirate attacks jumped by a third last year off the coast of West Africa but were mostly confined to the Gulf of Guinea, around Africa’s biggest oil producer Nigeria, where most of the hijacking gangs are believed to originate.”
