ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines – Abu Sayyaf terrorists have executed another of their Vietnamese captives in a village in Sulu, authorities reported.

Military men recovered the bullet-riddled body believed to be that of Tran Khac Dung, alias Tran Viet Van, from Barangay Buhanginan in Patikul town last July 8.

Reports said the body was recovered hours after troops encountered several members of the Abu Sayyaf. It could not be immediately ascertained if the victim was killed during the gun battle.

The Joint Task Force Sulu (JTFS) turned over the body to the police Anti-Kidnapping Group last Monday for proper disposition.
