Kidnapped Captain Found Dead in Sulu, Philippines.

The captain of the Vietnamese-flagged bulk carrier Royal 16, who was kidnapped by pirates over a year ago, was found dead, the Philippine Star reported citing the Philippine police.

The Vietnamese captain is believed to have been killed during clashes with the army in Talipao town in Sulu.

The master, Pham Minh Tuan, was taken from the bulker in November 2016 together with five other members of the crew by a group of ten armed men, linked to the Abu Sayyaf group.
