Kidnapped UK man and wife rescued after Philippines gun battle | BBC

Allan and Wilma Hyrons have been rescued after a joint effort by the UK and Philippine military and police. The Hyrons were taken by IS-loyal fighters called Abu Sayaff while at a beach resort on Mindanao Island in October. The two have lived in the Mindanao’s Zamboanga del Sur region since 2013, with Allan being a dual national. UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has announced that the couple is safe and sound, and thanked the Philippine authorities for their heroic efforts to bring the Hyrons home.
