ZAMBOANGA, PHILIPPINES – Islamic militants beheaded a retired Christian carpenter abducted nearly two months ago in the southern Philippines, police said Monday.

The 61-year-old was kidnapped April 21 on the island of Basilan by a kidnap gang believed allied with the Abu Sayyaf group, a small group of self-styled Islamic militants blamed for the country’s worst terrorist attacks in recent years.
