Manila, Philippines – Ligtas na ang Pilipinong mandaragat at 10 pang crew ng United Arab Emirates-flagged vessel na na-hijack ng Iran-backed Huthi rebels noong nakaraang linggo, ayon sa Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

“As far as I am aware, everyone seems to be ok so far,” ani DFA spokesman Ed Meñez.

Sinabing pito sa crew ng Rwabee ay Indian habang ang iba naman ay galing sa Ethiopia, Indonesia, Myanmar at Pilipinas.

“We have initial reports about the hijacking and media has confirmed one Filipino onboard. Philippines is not the lead in negotiations, and in these situations authorities don’t want info released,” dagdag pa ni Meñez. RNT/FGDC
