Ramadan Death count: Philippine 14/06/16

Officials have confirmed  that Abu Sayyaf militants beheaded a Robert Hall Canadian man, the second Canadian hostage to be killed in two months after their demands for a large ransom were not met. Mr Hall was abducted from a marina last September along with another Canadian, a Norwegian and a Filipino. The other Canadian, former mining executive John Ridsdel, was beheaded in April. A video obtained by Philippine police officials showed Hall in an orange shirt and kneeling in front of a black Islamic State-style flag before he was killed in a jungle area.

Ramadan death toll is now at 2,748
