Muslim Terrorists Release Video Featuring Canadian Hostages #elxn42

In a video posted to YouTube Monday, four people who were kidnapped last month from a resort in the southern Philippines appear to be held hostage by at least a dozen gunmen standing in front of Islamic State flags. According to the terrorism watchdog group SITE, the two-minute video was released by Abu Sayyaf, a militant Islamic group operating in the region that has pledged its allegiance to the Islamic State.

Canadians Robert Hall and John Ridsdel identify themselves in the video, as does Norwegian Kjartan Sekkingstad. A fourth hostage, whom SITE identifies as Filipina woman Marites Flor, does not speak in the video.
