An incident in mid-November on the resort island of Pom Pom off the eastern coast of Sabah prompted an alert from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office to avoid all but essential travel to islands off the coast between Sandakan and Tawau. The popular dive resort island of Sipadan is included in this alert. The U.S. State Department also advises travelers to avoid “the resort islands of Mabul, Pom Pom, Kapalai, Ligitan, Sipadan, and Mataking, as well as the peninsular Lahad Datu district (to include the Tabin Wildlife Reserve).” In November a Taiwanese man was killed in his room and his wife abducted by suspected criminals from the nearby southern Philippines.
