CBCP offers prayers for kidnapped ABS-CBN news team

Filed Under: Ces Drilon kidnapping

ILOILO CITY, Philippines -- Jaro Archbishop Angel Lagdameo, president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), has joined calls for the release of ABS-CBN reporter Ces Drilon and her two cameramen, who have been taken hostage in Sulu.

"We are praying that the group will soon be released and that their captors will have mercy on them," Lagdameo told the Philippine Daily Inquirer (parent company of INQUIRER.net) in an interview Wednesday night.

Drilon, cameramen Jimmy Encarnacion, and Angelo Valderama, and their guide, Professor Octavio Dinampo, were abducted in Sulu on Sunday by what authorities say are members of the Abu Sayyaf.

The Philippine National Police has confirmed that the kidnappers are demanding a ransom but ABS-CBN executives vowed not to pay ransom so as not to encourage similar attacks on journalists.

ABS-CBN and local authorities have tapped the help of Tausug leaders negotiate the safe release of the victims.
