On Thursday, Malaysian police forces shot and killed three kidnappers in waters near Tawi Tawi, an area known for attacks by members of the Abu Sayyaf militant group. Spokesman Abdul Rashid told Malaysian media that seven pirates had abducted the captain of a fishing vessel in waters east of Sabah, Malaysia. This narrow strait between the Sulu and Celebes Seas has been plagued by maritime kidnappings since early this year.
