Tourists kidnapped

“Undercurrent reports:

“”Diving in waters where Muslim extremists roam is still a dice roll, as we learn from events in the Philippines in early May. A year ago, Philippine extremists stormed the Malaysian divers’ island of Sipadan, taking 20 hostages back to the Philippines for ransom. Now they’ve hit another resort, this one in the Philippines, where one day at dawn they stormed Dos Palmas Island Resort at Honda Bay in Palawan Province, 375 miles southwest of Manila. Three of the hostages were American, one was a scuba diver.”
