French-flagged tanker in W. Africa released – Yahoo! News South Africa

A French-flagged tanker has been released after it was captured four days ago in the piracy-plagued waters off West Africa, the International Maritime Bureau said Monday.

In a short alert, the IMB’s Kuala Lumpur-based piracy reporting centre said the vessel was “released” earlier Monday and “is now proceeding to a safe port”.

The centre said the tanker was taken by pirates but did not say whether there were any losses, and could not be reached for further details.
