Abu Sayyaf Kills Canadian in Philippines

A Canadian hostage held by the militant group Abu Sayyaf in the Philippines has been killed, media reports say.
Robert Hall was kidnapped in September along with three other hostages from Canada, the Philippines and Norway.
Hall was killed on Monday after a deadline for a ransom expired, security sources told Canadian broadcaster CBC and Philippine news website Rappler. The Philippine and Canadian governments are opposed to paying ransoms for hostages, BBC reported.
The Philippines has launched military operations against the militant group.
Hall, his Filipina partner Marites Flor, Norwegian Kjartan Sekkingstad and Canadian John Ridsdel were kidnapped from a marina near the city of Davao last September.
They were taken to an Abu Sayyaf stronghold on the remote island of Jolo and Ridsdel was killed on 25 April after a ransom deadline passed.
