ATHENS (Reuters) - Three crew members of a Maltese-flagged supertanker, who were kidnapped by pirates three weeks ago off Nigeria, have been released, Greece's foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

The Kalamos crude carrier was heading to Nigeria's main oil terminal when it was attacked on Feb. 3. The pirates killed the ship's Greek deputy captain and escaped with three crew members -- one Pakistani and two Greeks.
