Greek-owned tanker ship “Kalamos,” flying the Maltese flag, was attacked by pirates off the coasts of Nigeria and Cameroon.

The pirates killed a Greek chief mate and abducted three crew members, two Greeks among them.

The Maltese-flagged tanker was traveling from China to Nigeria with no load and 23 crew members, of which 10 Greeks.

According to the Greek Shipping Ministry, there was an exchange of gunfire between the armed pirates and the ship’s crew members.

The vessel is not under occupation and remains anchored in the sea region where it was attacked.
