Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The Abu Sayyaf militant group still holds two Indonesian sailors in the southern Philippines.

The two sailors are Robin Peter and M Nasir. Abu Sayyaf Kidnapped them in Philippine waters last June.

"We are still trying to rescue them," the Foreign Ministry spokesman Arrmanatha Nasir said during a press briefing at the Foreign Ministry office in Jakarta on Thursday (10/6).

"We have intelligence in the southern Philippines. Hopefully, we can rescue them soon," he continued.

Abu Sayyaf released four Indonesian sailors few weeks ago.
