Abu Sayyaf Holding Four Canadian Hostages
The hostages demand the Philippines stop all operations against them, curiously the terrorist speaking at the end speaks in English.
The Canadians abducted were John Ridsdel, 68, and Robert Hall, 50, and the Norwegian resort owner was Kjartan Sekkingstad, 56. Hallís girlfriend, Marites Flor, was also abducted. She did not speak in the video. Philippine authorities had previously said they did not know if the Abu Sayyaf was behind the abductions, nor where the hostages were being held.
Other released captives in the past have reported that these jihadists" Knew little about their religion and did not appear to be deeply religious they are more likely motivated by ransom money. Than anything else kidnapping is quite a common crime in that area

But few of abu Sayyaf tapes have been in English..... Its odd the only Arabic was Allahu Ackbar.
Anyway seems like a rag tag bunch to me.... Just my impression. Reminds me of the AQIM vid a while back...
