Philippines: Another Canadian hostage killed by Philippines militant group Abu Sayyaf


Islamist extremists on Monday (June 13) executed the second of three foreigners they took from a high-end resort in the strife-torn southern Philippine island group of Mindanao, amid a military rescue operation involving up to eight battalions.

The small, but brutal, Abu Sayyaf group carried out its threat to behead Mr Robert Hall, 51, a Canadian, at 3pm on Monday in Jolo island, Sulu province, some 1,000km south of the capital Manila, the Philippine Daily Inquirer reported, citing a spokesman named Abu Raami.

A separate source in Jolo confirmed with The Straits Times Mr Hall had been executed.

Brigadier-General Restituto Padilla, the military spokesman, said: “I cannot confirm or deny it. We don’t have reports yet coming from our units on the ground.”
