The Filipino terrorist group Abu Sayyaf (linked to al-Qaeda) have claimed responsibility for the engine room explosion which caused the fire, although rescue/salvage workers have reported seeing no damage consistent with a bomb explosion. Of the now-known 899 people aboard, around 180 are still missing.
