SULU Now Under State of Emergency

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

The Local government of SULU has declared a state of emergency in the whole province.

This is in response to the deadline the Abu Sayyaf had set for the 3 International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) members who was threatened to be beheaded at 2PM this afternoon. No news has been heard since then. Malacanang Palace is closely monitoring events in the region. Sulu has been repeatedly been a haven of kidnappers since the 70's.

Press Secretary Cerge Remonde said that President Arroyo is at watch on all the events together with security and civilian authorities. The President has reiterated its request for the immediate release and safety of the hostages. They also are heeding for the public's prayer in this ordeal.

Sentaor and Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) Chairman Richard Gordon was very emotionally appealing for the kidnappers to release the 3 aid workers in the hopes the Abu Sayyaf would release what was agreed upon initially. ICRC and also Pope Benedict XVI was asking Abu Sayyaf to release them too. It has always been a hard bargain for these guys and the time they spent there is already too long that some of them are getting sick. I hope no one is harmed til now. If they do then it should be all out war for these terrorists.

I hope they send Philip Salvador, Robin Padilla, Erap, Jinggoy and others because they can kill about 50 villains at one stroke hahah... well that corny part was by my friend Ryan =P
