Three Indonesian fishermen have gone missing in waters off the southern Philippines in an area that has seen repeated kidnappings for ransom by Islamist militants. Authorities said the three Indonesians went missing on Wednesday in waters bordering the Philippines and Malaysia but the circumstances of their disappearance were still unknown.
