    Nigerian pirates have released the crew of a German oil tanker hijacked six days ago.

    The pirates seized the MT Cape Bird, a tanker with a crew of 20, including five Russians, in waters off Lagos on Saturday night.

    “The crewmembers were freed last night. All are safe and sound,” Sergei Panyushkin, the head of a Russian sailor recruiting firm, told RIA Novosti.

    The crew also included nationals of Georgia, Ukraine and Latvia.
