Three ENI Workers in Hostage, One Killed in Nigeria

Gunmen in Nigeria took three Italians hostage and killing another person Thursday

Gunmen attacked a southern Nigerian oil installation belonging to a subsidiary of Italy's Eni SpA early Thursday, taking three Italians hostage and killing another person, Italian and Nigerian officials said.

Italy's foreign ministry said that three Italians were kidnapped.

The identity of the dead man was not immediately clear, although it appeared he was a bystander rather than one of the attackers or an Agip employee, Ringim said.
