Abu Sayyaf Beheads Newest Hostage

Military sources in southern Philippines report that Mr. COSME ABALLES, taken at gunpoint  just last Friday, has just joined the roster of persons abducted and then beheaded by suspected Abu Sayyaf and/or MILF bandits. (via Manila Bulletin). Mr. Aballes was one of two persons taken in a rampage last Friday in Lamitan town. This development does not bode well for two remaining Red Cross workers taken hostage by the Abu Sayyaf last Juanuary, Italian Eugenio Vagni and Swiss citizen Andreas Notter.

I thought there were only a dozen or so Abu Sayyaff bandits...

Why can't the brave AFP catch them?
