SULU – Kidnappers have freed a Muslim teacher barely 2 weeks after she was seized in the southern Philippine province of Sulu.
The 45-year old Doris Hamsirani was recovered Tuesday in the village of Liang in Patikul town, police said.
Hamsirani was snatched on March 7 in Timbangan village in Indanan town, but details surrounding her abduction were unclear. Police said she was brought to a hospital in the capital town of Jolo for a medical check-up.
It was unknown whether her family paid ransom or not, or whether the Abu Sayyaf or other group was behind her abduction. Police provided no other details.
The Abu Sayyaf is still holding over a dozen hostages, mostly foreign sailors, in the troubled region.
The military did not release any statement on Hamsirani’s release. (Mindanao Examiner)Like Us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mindanaoexaminer
