Nigeria's main rebel group MEND on Wednesday claimed to have located three French nationals and another sailor kidnapped earlier by pirates.

"The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) can confirm that it has located the three abducted French nationals and another individual abducted in a separate incident on the same night," the group said in a statement.

"We are in negotiations with the abductors towards effecting a transfer of the men to the custody of MEND," the statement said.
