We have thirteen New Hope workers in the Zamboanga area of the Philippines where government troops are battling a breakaway group of Muslim extremists. Scores of civilian hostages are being used by the rebels as human shields. Included in the hostages were two of our sponsored boys, Elisio and Michael. After being held for eight days they escaped on Tuesday 17th during darkness as the army moved in with tear gas. Elisio was hit in the shoulder by gunfire and is to be operated on today.
