    Kidnapping in Zamboanga.

    Has anyone heard of the Kidnapping in Zamboanga yesterday? A British resort owner and his Filipina wife were kidnapped 18 hours ago at gunpoint by four men, police are searching and suspect members of a terrorist group are involved. Can any members enlighten us with an update?

    It happened near Pagadian not Zamboanga.
    <<<< Me at the Taal Volcano in Tagaytay (November 2013). On this particularly visit to Pinas I arrived in Manila the day after Typhoon Yolanda wreaked havoc further south.

    Even though it is, I never said it was. I just stated that the kidnapping happened close to Pagadian and not the city of Zamboanga which is a lot further south.

    yes i checked it out on google there is quite a distance between them, reports proberbly say Zamboanga because its better known,and i see now why you pointed out the actual location, also my wording on my post looking at it again maybe could have been worded better , so sorry i meant no offence

    Recent news reports reveal the couple fired a few teachers from the school they own.
    Investigations are under way with revenge as a motive.........
