Source: Foreign oil workers kidnapped in Nigeria
Italian oil contractor employees were taken from car under escort

PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria (Reuters) -- The three foreigners kidnapped in Nigeria on Thursday are employees of Italian oil contractor Saipem (SPMI.MI), and at least one of them is an Italian national, industry sources said.

The three men were abducted from a car under police escort in the southern city and oil capital of Port Harcourt. Police said they had arrested one of the suspected kidnappers.

On Wednesday in Port Harcourt, a gunman on a motorcycle shot and killed a U.S. oil executive in an apparently planned assassination.

Port Harcourt is the largest city in the Niger Delta, and several oil multinationals have major offices there, including Royal Dutch Shell and Agip.

But militants who have been waging a five-month-long campaign against the oil industry said they had no hand in the killing of the executive, who worked for Texan oil services company Baker Hughes.

A diplomat and oil industry source said it was more likely to be linked to a work-related dispute.

Attacks by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) have forced multinationals to cut Nigerian oil exports by a quarter, and the group had threatened this week to carry out more attacks on oil industry targets and individuals.

That's not really all that funny, you know. Some of us here have family and friends who work in the oil industry. I'd hate to think that they could be a target for some gunman because of their job.

Sorry. I wasn't trying to offend anybody. Just posted the story.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
