Abu Sayyaf release trader held captive in Philippines
A Filipino trader being held captive by suspected Abu Sayyaf terrorists militants in the southern Philippines was released on Friday, local police said later that day.

Chief Inspector Ariel Huesca said the victim, a man named Edgar Fabella, was abandoned by his captors around 10:00 a.m. at the port of Jolo in Sulu province.

Fabella, who was seized last month in southern Philippine city of Zamboanga by the Abu Sayyaf, said that he was treated well and no ransom had been paid to the kidnappers in exchange for his freedom.
