Taiwanese journalist Edd Jhong on Saturday posted details on Facebook about the five people in custody. The detainees are thought to be protestors who participated in a movement opposing a proposed extradition bill.
According to the Taiwan-based China Times newspaper, the five individuals were rescued by local authorities near a group of Taiwanese-controlled islands in the South China Sea.
