Two security guards have died on a Spanish tuna fishing vessel after an apparent murder-suicide. 

Seychelles' authorities are investigating the deaths that occurred on the 96 meter (315 foot) Txori Gorri which arrived in port on Saturday with the bodies of the two men, aged 40 and 41.

The shooting incident apparently occurred on Friday after an argument between the guards who were on board as an anti-piracy measure. The vessel, with 33 on board, had been fishing off the coast of Madagascar and was on its way to the Seychelles’ Port Victoria.
