The Abu Sayyaf beheaded another 18-year-old man abducted in Jolo, Sulu last month. They did this abominable incident because the ransom demanded by the group wasn't accommodated. According to the military, 3 members of the Abu Sayaff left the head of Patrick James Almodovar in Sulu, earlier. The head was found by the authorities, wrapped in a plastic bag. They are still continuing to search and find the victim's body.
In conjunction with the execution, the military security in Sulu is much more restrictive and the government sent additional forces in the area. Now there are twenty more captives held by the Abu Sayyaf including nine Indonesian.
