Poland’s prime minister Beata Syzdlo has announced that the Polish crew kidnapped in November off Nigeria are on their way home.
“Everything ended happily. The sailors are safe and sound, we are glad that they are coming back to their families,” Szydlo said yesterday.
Pirates attacked the Cyprus-registered Szafir operated by EuroAfrica two weeks ago, taking its master and four seafarers hostage.
Another ship was attacked in a similar location in late October with four seafarers taken hostage, two of whom remain captured six weeks on.
