Islamic terrorists execute Canadian hostage in the Phillipines, by Tom Batchelor.
The jungle militia extremists Abu Sayyaf, an al Qaeda-linked militant group, were said to have killed Robert Hall who had been held on a remote southern island with three other people since September 2015.
A shocking image has emerged showing Mr Hall being held by two heavily-armed men, one of whom is wearing a balaclava and clutching a knife. …
Another Canadian who was held captive, former mining executive John Ridsdel, was executed by the group in April after it failed to secure a £3.5million ransom. A Norwegian man and a Filipino woman are still being held.
