Re: Pirate attack Phillipines ?

The Philippine army on Wednesday rejected demands by Islamist militants to start negotiations for the release of three abducted foreign tourists and a Filipino woman and halt an offensive on a remote southern island.

Pray for their safety. Many hostage situations end up in deadly gunfights with captors versus military operations. This is so scary situation.

Congrats to the army for refusing to negotiate with these scumbags.

Probably have to announce this publicly, but who knows what may or may not be happening behind the scenes. Hopefully some progress towards releasing these hostages.

Re: Pirate attack Phillipines ?

New.kidnapping last week. Hope someone posts rewards for info to turn in masterminds of these horrors.

Italian expat trying to run business was taken.

Rolando del Torchio, 53, was taken at gunpoint after four men entered his pizzeria in Dipolog City in the restive southern region of Mindanao posing as customers, police said. They were among a group of 10 abductors who dragged del Torchio into a getaway van that was later found abandoned.

It was believed del Torchio was then transferred to a motor boat that headed for southern coastal towns in Zamboanga del Norte province, according to a police report.
