abu what?

hey remember when abu sayyaf kidnappings made big news? i didn't even notice that the group had totally fallen out of the headlines, until i saw this story about their agreement to free some hostages. free hostages? i didn't know they had any, and i try to follow this stuff.

gone are the days of jeffrey schilling and the burnhams. it looks like the group found the quickest route to obscurity: it stopped kidnapping americans.
