Abu Sayyaf abducted three seamen in Tambisan Island
Seven masked-men armed with high powered firearms abducted three Indonesian seamen from a Malaysian fishing boat.
The fishing boat was in the vicinity waters of Tambisan Island, Lahad Datu, Sabah, Malaysia when the perpetrators boarded the fishing boat from two pump boats.
According to local media reports indicate that the men were taken after a pair of trawlers were boarded. Seamen were only taken from one vessel, but documents and mobile phones were taken from the other.
The authorities of Malaysia and Philippine are stepping up patrol efforts and intensifying military operations to rescue the abducted crew and “neutralize” the militant group.
