Hostage Jurgen Kantner Murdered by Abu Sayyaf
he Philippines and Germany condemned on Monday the beheading of an elderly German captive by Islamic State-linked Abu Sayyaf militants who posted a video of the killing after a deadline for a $600,000 ransom passed.The video is here for those of you who want to see the barbarity of these butchers.
The video showed a machete-wielding militant behead Jurgen Kantner. The German had appealed for help twice in short video messages, saying he would be killed if ransom were not paid.
I've had my fill and usually skip them these days, though I did view this one.
