The incident occurred in the Gulf of Guinea 60 nautical miles south of Benin’s capital Cotonou when the crew was aboard the 994-ton fishing vessel.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack on the Ghanaian-flagged Panofi Frontier on which at least 30 crew members were on board.
South Korea’s Foreign Ministry said it was working to secure the release of its nationals. ■
