MANILA, Philippines -- Three aid workers believed to have been abducted by members of the Abu Sayaf have been freed by their captors, military officials said.

The victims were released in Al Barka, Basilan Monday night, said Lieutenant Colonel Ernesto Torres, spokesman for the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

Ludivina Dakit, Romy delos Reyes and Jun Estandarte are now in the custody of the 1st Marine Brigade based in Isabela City, Basilan, Philippine Navy spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Edgard Arevalo, said.

Two other aid workers, Esperanza Hupida and Milet Mendoza, remain with the kidnappers, who have not yet made any demands for their release, Arevalo added.

The five were part of a 12-man humanitarian team onboard two vehicles that was blocked by 10 armed men near Tipo-Tipo town.

The navy identified the seven NGO workers who were able to elude capture as Jerson Imamil, Sahida Alasa, Hapira Alasa, Nenita Sanchez, Nifra Abdulkadir, Amina Saladdin and Lina Grace Balamo.

The kidnapping was carried out by supposed Abu Sayyaf rebels under the command of
Furuji Indaman, Torres said.

The aid workers who worked for the Christian Children's Fund and the Nagdilaab Foundation, a Christian-Muslim charity.

Marayag, navy commander in the southwestern Philippines, said the women were recovered by pursuing government forces near Tipo-Tipo and were undergoing a military debriefing.

He did not say whether they were harmed by the kidnappers.

Arevalo said a crisis committee composed of local government units, the Marine brigade commander and the Basilan Philippine National Police was formed Tuesday morning "to determine how to facilitate the situation."

"We are open to any opportunity that would ensure the safe release of the victims," said Arevalo, adding that negotiations are possible.

However, Arevalo clarified that the "no ransom policy" will be strictly implemented in the situation.
