Another Philippine Hostage Free
It is not clear yet whether Swiss Red Cross worker Andreas Notter was released, or left behind after police chased a group of terrorists who tried to break through the cordon surrounding their camp. The military has been drawing closer over the last few days after months long talks failed to produce any results.
One more (Eugenio Vagni) of that group to go. Still another twenty or so being held elsewhere in the Southern Philippines.
