Seven seafarers have been kidnapped from a container ship off the coast of Gabon in the Gulf of Guinea.
Dryad Global reported with high confidence on Sunday that the MSC Talia F had come under attack approximately 52 nautical miles from Port Libreville resulting in the kidnapping of seven crew members.
The Portuguese-flagged ship was reportedly underway from Lome to Port Libreville when the attack took place. The ship is believed to have a crew consisting of 17 Ukranian nationals.
Dryad notes that the incident is believed to be the first in the area so far this year.
(Note: MSC Talia F was former Maersk Fukuoka on charter to Maersk until 2010.)
