A disturbing video released by Abu Sayyaf shows Canadian hostage John Risdel being beheaded after Canada’s refusal to pay the ransom for his life.
The brutal video was released on ISIS terrorist Channels under the title “Abu Sayyaf Hostage BEHEADED Pt. 1.”
The title suggests that the remaining two foreigners and one Filipino being held captive in Jolo may be in eminent danger.
Risdel appears in several ransom video released since his kidnapping from Samal Island in September 2015. John appeared along with Robert Hall, Khartan Sekkingstad and the Filipina who was Robert’s girlfriend.
Abu Sayyaf set a one-month deadline, threatening to behead one of its captives.
