At least six foreign oil workers were kidnapped last night during an attack on an oil industry compound in Nigeria’s Delta region.

The Foreign Office said initial reports suggested four Britons and two Malaysians, as well as another person whose nationality was unknown, were abducted.

The workers were taken from a compound in Eket, southern Nigeria. Two Nigerian security guards were thought to have been killed in the attack.

In a separate incident, about 25 Nigerian staff of a Royal Dutch Shell contractor were abducted during a raid in another part of the Delta on Monday.
