According to the Wall Street Journal, Abu Sayyaf militants have freed 10 Indonesian tugboat crewmen who were seized at sea in March and taken to a jungle encampment in the southern Philippines, officials said Sunday.

The newspaper added that the Indonesians appeared to be in good health when they were dropped off Sunday at the house of the Sulu province governor in Jolo, according to the town’s police chief, Junpikar Sitin. The 10 men were then brought to a Philippine military camp, where arrangements were to be made for them to be turned over to Indonesian officials.
