Dutch man, captive for 7 years, dies as Philippines troops try to free him

Philippine military officials have said a long-held Dutch hostage has been shot and killed by his Abu Sayyaf captors when he tried to escape during a gunbattle. Dutch birdwatcher Ewold Horn was fatally shot on Friday while trying to escape during a gunbattle between the militants and army troops. Horn was abducted by gunmen during a birdwatching trip in Tawi Tawi province in 2012.
