 MEXICO CITY – An Italian ship was attacked Wednesday night by pirates in the Gulf of Mexico, say Italian foreign ministry sources.

 The Foreign Ministry’s crisis unit says it is following the incident with maximum attention and cooperating with the Italian ambassador in Mexico.

 Two Italian sailors have been wounded, but not seriously, said La Repubblica.

 The ship, the “Remas,” is the property of the Micoperi company, based in Ravenna.
