Abu Sayyaf – ransom demands ongoing

Video released from Abu Sayyaf with the remaining three hostages, Marites Flor, Robert Hall and Kjartan Sekkingstad pleading for help. 

Kjartan Sekkingstad is heard saying in his address  “like our friend John was a few days ago.” Canadian Ridsdel was found decapitated in late April. The remote location and the difficulty in finding an upload facility may be the cause for the delay between production and release.
