Kunak kidnap: Filipino gunmen kidnap fish breeder, worker in Sabah east coast

LAHAD DATU: A 32-year-old fish breeder and a Filipino worker were abducted by two gunmen in Kunak, about 60km away from this town in the east coast of Sabah early Monday.

The two victims, who have yet to be identified, were taken from their fish farm at Kampung Sapang at about 12.45am by the two men armed with rifles.

The gunmen, believe to be Filipinos, fled across the border to southern Philippines in a speed boat.

The Philippines authorities have been alerted while Malaysian security forces are continuing to comb the area.
