ZAMBOANGA CITY: Suspected Abu Sayyaf gunmen have freed two construction workers they seized in the province of Sulu, officials said Sunday. Officials said Jimal Abdilla, 30, and Kilder Sakandal, 45, were released safely in the village of Liang in Patikul town—the same area where gunmen abducted them on Saturday. Senior Supt. Abraham Orbita, the provincial police chief, said the duo was blindfolded by their captors and eventually freed. The duo was driving a truck heading to Jolo town when gunmen flagged down the vehicle at a checkpoint and seized them.
