Raab praises Filipino armed forces of rescue of Britons

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has praised authorities in the Philippines that helped secure the rescue of two British nationals who were abducted last month.

Alan and Wilma Hyrons were abducted by gunmen believed to be allied with the so-called Islamic State group on October 4.

They were successfully rescued during a military operation on the island of Sulu, carried out by Filipino armed forces, on Monday.
