Video of The Abu Sayyaf Beheading Their German Hostage Has Surfaced Online.

On Tuesday, February 28, 2017, the Armed Forces of the Philippines held a media briefing about the recent beheading of a German national by the Abu Sayyaf.

During the weekend, the Abu Sayyaf posted a video where they claimed that they would behead Juergen Kantner, a German national they were holding hostage since November 2016, if the government refused to pay PHP 30 million as ransom.

On Tuesday, the AFP and MalacaƱang Palace confirmed what the government feared to be true - a reliable source had indeed informed them that Kantner was beheaded on Saturday.

In Tuesday's AFP press briefing that was held in Camp Aguinaldo,  AFP Public Affairs Chief Colonel Edgard Arevalo condemned the reported beheading of Kantner.

According to GMA News Online, news of the beheading has also reached German authorities and they have resolved to aid the Philippines in the fight against the Abu Sayyaf.

The German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel had the following to say about the tragic event when he spoke at a conference in Rome early this week:

"Sadly, we have to assume that the news coming out of the Philippines is correct: that the kidnapped German citizen is no longer alive. Of course it is appalling to see how brutally and inhumanely a human life was treated. His murder is abhorrent. And it shows just what methods international terror is prepared to use... Of course the relevant German authorities will work with the Philippines to do everything we can to catch the perpetrators. Such a crime cannot go unpunished."

However, as if the killing wasn't bad enough, it seems that a video of the Abu Sayyaf beheading Kantner has started to circulate on the internet.

The popular trending news site Danified posted an article about the leaked video on Tuesday afternoon. The site even provided a link for those who wished to see the brutal killing.

Netizens be warned: Anyone who is thinking of watching and sharing the video may face serious consequences if caught by the authorities.
