Gunman abduct two Canadians, a Norwegian, and a Filipino woman from a resort in the Philippines

Military officials reported that two Canadian tourists, a Norwegian resort manager, and a Filipino woman were abducted from an Ocean view resort known as the “Island Garden City” on Samal Island.

According to Philippines army Captain Alberto Caber, several armed men stormed the resort kidnapping the four at gunpoint.

Authorities said that the gunman attempted to abduct a Japanese couple but failed because the pair fought back.

Police said that the armed men spoke both English and Tagalog and that they fled the scene using boats. Authorities said that they have dispatched three naval ships to search for the captives.

Authorities told thirty foreign tourists to stay inside the resort, as they believe foreigners to be the target.
