On Tuesday afternoon an employee on board the container ship Maersk Alabama found two of his colleagues dead. The ship is berthed in the Seychelles while the deaths are being investigated.

Two American security guards were found dead Tuesday on container ship Maersk Alabama. The ship berthed in Port of Victoria, in the Seychelles, on Monday and was scheduled to depart again on Tuesday, when an employee discovered the two men, according to Danish DR Nyheder.

"The cause of both guards' death is part of an ongoing investigation, though the event is in no way related to the operation of the ship or their jobs as security guards. The families of the deceased have been notified and our thoughts are with them," says Louise Münter, Head of Media Relations at A.P. Moeller, to DR Nyheder.
