From the Jak Globe, Saturday 23/04/2016

Jakarta. The five Indonesians, rescued by Malaysian authorities following last week's kidnapping attempt by Abu Sayyaf militants, have safely arrived at Tarakan, North Kalimantan, on Saturday (23/04), a navy official said.

The five were part of a group of 10 Indonesian crewmembers of a tugboat that was hijacked by the militant group in the waters between Malaysia and the Philippines, while heading back from Cebu to Tarakan.

Another Indonesian crewmember, who was wounded during a shootout between Malaysian authorities and the militants, is still undergoing intensive medical treatment at a hospital in Sabah, Malaysia, while four others were taken hostage by the group.

The five rescued crewmembers were escorted by two warships to the border between Malaysia and Indonesia, First Adm. Wahyudi H. Dwiyono said.

"They will undergo medical checkups on a warship before being reunited with their families," Wahyudi said, as quoted by

The Indonesian government has been pushing efforts to prevent frequent hijackings in the area, including cooperating with neighboring countries to step up security and maritime patrols.
