MANILA — The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Friday reported that five Filipino seafarers have been missing after their ship caught fire off the Falkland Islands.

Ambassador to the United Kingdom Antonio Lagdameo assured that the Embassy is ready to provide assistance and is in close coordination with relevant authorities as well as with the manning agency of the Filipino seafarers.

At present, the Philippine Embassy in London is still trying to get more information about the incident.

According to the envoy, the five Filipinos were among 69 crew members of a Taiwanese fishing vessel that went ablaze off the islands on Monday.

Last January, five Filipino sailors were also reported missing after abandoning their burning cargo vessel on New Year’s Eve some 1,800 nautical miles northwest of Oahu, Hawaii. There has been no update on their whereabouts. (PNABy Joyce Ann L. Rocamora
