Nigeria: Pirates attack Turkish ship, 3 wounded

An attack on March 25 off Nigeria reported here:
Pirates attacked a Turkish cargo ship off the coast of Nigeria, injuring three crew members, Turkey's state-run news agency Anatolian reported on Friday.

Eight to 10 pirates with automatic weapons boarded the Ozay 5 late Thursday. They robbed the crew of money and cellphones but fled after the ship began making distress calls.

The ship's cargo was not damaged in the attack.

Two of the injured crew were Turkish and one was Nigerian, Anatolian quoted the Turkish Maritime Undersecretariat as saying.
The crew has been returned home.
