US & Brit Oil Workers taken in Port Harcourt

These hostages were taken from the centre of Port Harcourt (see links). Hostage taking in Nigeria is a serious ongoing problem. Of course there are still other hostages being held in Nigeria, some since before Christmas. My thoughts are with the hostages and their families. It's a shocking and frightening situation to be dealing with.
