Officials said the men had seized at least 65 villagers in Agusan del Sur province on Mindanao island.

The vice-governor told AP news agency nearly 20 gunmen were involved and local officials were attempting to negotiate the hostages' release.

It is not known if the kidnappings are linked to the region's four-decades long communist insurgency.

"The incident took place in an area where communist rebels are known to operate, although it is not thought to be related to that four-decades long insurgency.

Nor are the abductions believed to be linked to a Muslim separatist rebellion elsewhere on Mindanao; one of the main insurgent groups is in peace talks with the government. "

What is going on oner there, Comminists against Muslims?
