VIDEO: Gunmen kidnap tourists and local woman in Philippines

Two Canadians, a Norwegian and a local woman have been kidnapped from a tourist resort in the southern Philippines, the military has said.

An army spokesman said they were taken by gunmen late on Monday from the Holiday Oceanview resort on Samal Island, near Davao City on Mindanao.

 

The attackers, who have not been identified by police, left by boat, Capt Alberto Caber told reporters. He said it appeared the four were targeted rather than taken at random.
