Canadians held in Philipines

Muslim terror group threatens to execute 2 Canadian men kidnapped in Philippines

MANILA — Islamist militants on a remote Philippines island have again threatened to execute a pair of Canadian men if ransom isn’t paid soon.

The violent Islamist militant group Abu Sayyaf wants $110 million in ransom to set Robert Hall, 50, and John Ridsdel, 68, free.

Gunmen kidnapped the two Canadians from the upscale Oceanview resort on Samal island last September.

    I’m sure Justin will lead a JTF2 team to free them and their fellow prisoners.

      A JTF2 live-fire jungle training exercise in the area would be a good idea. They could encourage diversity and cross-cultural awareness by including member of NCCM to assist with targeting and such.
