Canadian hostage John Ridsdel executed by AbuSayyaf Indonesian Islamic terrorist branch of ISIS. (Napo).
Hope flickered briefly early Monday without a word from Abu Sayyaf as the deadline for the execution of the militants’ four hostages came and went.
The Islamist terrorists, based on the island of Jolo in the southern Philippines, had threatened to kill Canadians John Ridsdel and Robert Hall, Hall’s Filipino girlfriend Marites Flor, and Norwegian Kjartan Sekkingstad.
Then police in Jolo City, the provincial capital, made a grisly find.
A plastic bag dumped on the street was found to contain the head of a Caucasian man, later identified as Ridsdel, 68. The fate of his three companions was not known.
“A motorcycle driver threw a plastic bag in the road in front of where there were five children playing at 7:30 p.m. But there was a brown-out (power failure). When the lights went back on it was seen that there was blood on the plastic bag and police were called.”His executioners acted under the orders of Ben Tatoh Sawadjaan.
In Kananaskis, Alta., Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described it as a “cold-blooded murder” by the militants. Hmmmm........Trudeau Can't even mention the word terrorist, if it would have happened during Harper's time he would be screaming like a banshee blaming the PM. Read the full story here. More on this story here by TRACterrorism. And Here.
