The foreigners, including 177 Indonesians and at least 10 Malaysians, were purportedly using Philippine passports.

A source from the Bureau of Immigration said that the foreigners were intercepted by the anti-human trafficking task force at around 3:30 am, Friday, before they got on a Philippine Airlines flight for Saudi Arabia.

The Inquirer saw that all the foreigners’ baggage was marked “Sheik Omar Abdulaziz,” who could be the organizer of their group.
