Default Cruisers taken Hostage at Oceanview Marina on Samal Island Davao Philippines

Has anyone heard about this? more news?

A note from another cruiser:

Last night Oceanview Marina on Samal Island Davao was attacked at approximately 2300 by 8 armed me...n. Four of our fellow yachtsmen and women have been abducted and another couple sustained head injuries fighting off the attackers. At this early stage we do not know who is responsible.These were deliberate attacks and not random theft. The attackers only appeared to be interested in hostage taking. Both marina fingers were attacked at the same time.

I've been watching this one develop with some concern. More nutters in the world we don't need. Up until recently PI was a fairly safe country free of such terrorist madness.

We definitely don't need more nutters in the world. But to say terrorist activity is only recent in the Philippines is not true.
