Two security officers were found dead Tuesday on the Maersk Alabama container ship, the same vessel portrayed in the Oscar-nominated film, ‘Captain Phillips.’
The security guards, both Americans, aged 44, were found in a ship cabin by a colleague who wanted to check on one of the two men. The ship was moored in the Seychelles.
A police investigation is ongoing.
