Pirates kill 8 in Zamboanga

This undated photo received on January 10, 2017 shows Philippine Coast Guard personnel inspecting a fishing boat. The boat's crew (center, background) were allegedly killed by pirates off the coast of Laud Siromon in Zamboanga City. The number of maritime kidnappings hit a 10-year high in 2016, with waters off the southern Philippines becoming increasingly dangerous, the International Maritime Bureau said on January 10.
