Philippines Charges Islamic State-Linked Militants With Kidnapping, Beheading
By Jake Maxwell Watts - Biography@jmwatts - Jan. 30, 2018 7:02 a.m. ET

Note: One of the accused is sought by the U.S. for allegedly funding a failed plot to bomb New York in 2016

More than 50 members of an Islamic State-linked militant group that occupied and laid waste to the southern Philippines city of Marawi were charged with kidnapping and murder in one of the country’s largest mass indictments of alleged terror groups.

The charges, though not in relation to the Marawi occupation itself, referred to crimes allegedly committed a year before, at a time when Maute group was growing in prominence and attracting funding from Islamic State which was then later used to finance the assult.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
