(Newser) – Two American security officers were found dead on the Maersk Alabama container ship—better known as the "Captain Phillips" ship. It's the same vessel Hollywood filmmakers used in the movie Captain Phillips, based on a pirate hijacking off the coast of Somalia. The ship was docked in the island nation of Seychelles, and Fox News reports that both men were former Navy SEALS who were working as security contractors. The investigation is continuing, but early signs don't suggest foul play.
