Police in the Philippines say two Filipinos who were held captive in the jungle for nearly eight months have been by rebels. However, a Jordanian kidnapped with them is still missing.

The Filipinos were part of a Jordanian television crew seized in the southern province of Sulu as they were about to interview members of the Abu Sayyaf group.

The pair, a camera man and an audio technician, reportedly lost a lot of weight. The reporter is still missing.
