Two US sailors kidnapped in October from a ship off Nigeria’s coast have been freed, the state department says.
The two men were the captain and chief engineer of the US-flagged C-Retriever oil supply ship, it says.
State department spokeswoman Jen Psaki declined to provide any details how the sailors were released.
Incidents of piracy off Nigeria’s coast have increased this year as gangs try to snatch cargoes from ships passing through the Gulf of Guinea.
