BERLIN (AP) — A German shipping company says pirates have abducted eight crew members from one of its vessels off the coast of West Africa.
Shipping company MC-Schiffahrt said on its website that pirates attacked the MarMalaita late Wednesday while it was anchored off Douala, Cameroon. The Hamburg-based company said it has assembled an emergency response team and is working with "all relevant authorities" to free its crew.
