CAIRO - The Philippines-based militant group Abu Sayyaf posted a video on Monday showing the beheading of a man identified as a German hostage captured last November.
The video reposted by the militancy-monitoring group SITE showed a machete-wielding militant kill the elderly German hostage. SITE identified the man as Jurgen Kantner.
Abu Sayyaf is believed to be holding a number of hostages and has freed several in return for ransom payments. Kantner's deadline for ransom had expired on Sunday, according to SITE.
