Al Qaeda-linked gunmen in the Philippines have refused to release a reported seven foreigners they’re holding hostage, as two weeks of negotiations with the government end in failure, according to various media reports.
“It’s not easy, but we’re doing everything to win their freedoms,” Malik said, in an Associated Press report.
The Moro is trying to free the hostages; Moro rebel leader Khabir Malik said his group has been at the forefront of negotiations for weeks.
