Body of beheaded German hostage found: Philippines


The Philippine military says it had recovered the body of an elderly German hostage who was beheaded by Islamic militants last week. The Abu Sayyaf, a kidnap-for-ransom network in the southern Philippines that has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group, killed Jurgen Kantner, 70, after its demands for 30 million pesos ($600,000) were not met.
