manila - Filipino security forces have found seven captured bodies on Monday of suspected victims of abduction in two cities on the southern island of Basilan. The place is a ballet of terrorist movement Abu Sayyaf.
The army said the victims do not belong to a group of 23 prisoners for whom Abu Sayyaf demands ransom. Among them are more than ten foreign seamen caught on the Sulu Sea. The Dutchman Ewold Horn is also in the hands of the terrorist movement. He has been in place since early 2012.
The found bodies were identified by the clothes they wore and the ID cards they had with them.
The army has been fighting for a long time against Abu Sayyaf, a small violent group known for extortions, piracy and abductions. The movement claims to be part of Islamic State.
