Philippines Tries To Contact Red Cross Captors

"MANILA, PHILIPPINES: Philippine authorities were trying to re-establish contact with al-Qaida-linked militants threatening to kill three Red Cross hostages, officials said Thursday (2 April).
Gov. Abdusakur Tan of southern Sulu province, where the Abu Sayyaf threatened to behead one hostage this week, said the militants and captives were on the run as the government redeployed troops around a hilly area on Jolo island close to their camp.
Tan declared a state of emergency on Jolo on Tuesday (31 April), hours after the beaheading deadline set by the militants lapsed. Tan later said he had information but not proof the hostages were alive as troops rumbled off in tanks and trucks to try to prevent the militants from escaping." (2009, Mysinchew.com)
