A military statement also confirmed that a severed head, believed to be Hall's, was found near the Jolo island cathedral Monday night.Members of the notorious kidnap-for-ransom Abu Sayyaf gang had said they would murder Hall if they did not receive 300 million pesos ($6.5 million) ransom by Monday afternoon.Hall was among four people abducted in September last year from aboard yachts at a tourist resort on Samal island in the southern Philippines. The beheadings have taken place despite the heavy deployment of military and police forces to locate them in the strife-torn island of Jolo, the largest island in the Muslim-populated archipelago of Sulu, about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) from Manila.
