A report by the Zamboanga based journal says that the military says that one of two kidnap victims has reportedly been beheaded in Jolo, Sulu. This comes in the wake of claims by the Military of having been able to foil attacks and amidst heightened security after a on-going operation versus rebels in the area of Indanan and patikul towns in Sulu.
ZAMBOANGA CITY (Zamboanga Journal / 12 Aug) Suspected Abu Sayyaf militants beheaded one of their two kidnapped victims in Jolo island, about 950 km south of Manila, where security forces were battling the terrorist group tied to the Indonesian Jemaah Islamiya network, officials said Saturday. …” 
The report comes on the heels of statements from the Government of having foiled attacks being planned by the joint JI and Abu sayyaf group in the area - perhaps to have been timed with the attempts to sow terror on flights over the Atlantic?

There are often times a failure by some to see the true global picture of many of the attacks of these groups are so close in when they happen - take Madrid bombings for example - then the superferry 14 bombing then at the same time a series of attacks in Iraq and a few in Thailand. All often with-in a 48 hour to a week long period. A day ago there was a set of bomb attacks in Kidapawan and clash with police in a area near Cotabato. The situation makes it not hard to see that global netowrks are at times coincidence filled in timing or more of regualr pattern of each group doing something to show they are still around.
