In a new video released by Islamic State, Canadian hostage John Ridsdel is beheaded after Canada’s refusal to pay the terrorists his ransom. The brutal video was released on ISIS terrorist channels.
Ridsdel appeared in a ransom video released in November 2015 by Abu Sayyaf, the second time he was forced on camera following his kidnapping in September. He appeared along with Robert Hall, also of Canada, and Kjartan Sekkingstad of Norway. A third woman in the video, who appeared Filipino, did not speak. It was unclear if she was a hostage, too.
