Philippines: 1 hostage escapes, another drowns and 3rd shot
The remaining captives include the Dutch bird watcher Elwold Horn, who was kidnapped by the militants in 2012, and two Filipinos. The Malaysian hostage was escaping from his Abu Sayyaf captors and had been shot in the head and chest.

In 2017, Tuberville briefly considered a run for Alabama governor, but decided against stepping into the political arena to pursue the Republican party nomination for the state's highest office.

The Republican primary for the seat will be held in March 2020, and the general election is set for November 3, 2020.

Tuberville's announcement comes just after Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz chose to dispel rumors Friday that he was going to run for Senate in Alabama.

Tuberville, an Arkansas native, was Auburn's head coach from 1999-2008.

Tuberville has a career coaching record of 159-99 with stops at Ole Miss, Auburn, Texas Tech and Cincinnati. He stepped down at Cincinnati after the Bearcats went 4-8 in 2016.
