Prayers will be sent tonight.
These Iraqi terrorists should be wiped out post haste from the face of the planet. After the beheading of a couple of Americans and a Korean on TV, it doesn't look good at all for this poor fellow.
I will pray for him and for his family.
Filipino or not . . . my prayers for him and his family . . .
The head of the Presidential Middle East Preparedness Team Ambassador Roy Cimatu on Thursday said he is still verifying the identity and nationality of a man who was reportedly seized by gunmen in Iraq.
The Arabic satellite channel al-Jazeera showed a video tape of three gunmen and an alleged Filipino man dressed in an orange jumpsuit kneeling in front of them.
The video showed the identity card of a man named as Hafidh H. Amer, an employee of a security services company.
"Yes we are still verifying that report. His name (Amer) is not on our list of OFWs," Cimatu told dzMM. "We checked all the websites this morning (Thursday morning) in Iraq if there's such a name as Hasid Amir but it's negative."
Al-Jazeera reported that gunmen have seized a Filipino man working in Iraq and threatened to kill him unless Manila withdraws its forces from the country within 72 hours.
The group said it killed an Iraqi security guard with the Filipino, who, it said, worked for a Saudi company working with U.S. forces, al-Jazeera reported.
The Philippines has about 50 military personnel in Iraq.
A banner behind the men identified the group as the Khalid bin Waleed Corps of the Islamic Army in Iraq, named after an early Islamic military leader.
Armed groups in Iraq have seized dozens of foreigners in recent weeks. One group has beheaded two captives, one American and one South Korean .
